How to Plant Okra?


Till your garden spot really well and plant the okra seed about 1/4 to 1/2' deep. You may need to thin it a little when it starts to come up. If you soak the seeds in a little bleach the night before planting, the ants won't eat the seed.

Soak the seeds overnight in a little bleach and you will have better seed germination. Plant the seeds in some well tilled soil in a sunny location after the danger of frost has passed and you should have okra in no time. It grows very fast and in the fall you can cut the plants down to about a foot from the ground and you will have a fall crop of okra.
To plant okra you need to plant the seeds in rows in good soil. Okra loves the sun and will need to be planted in a sunny area. Make sure you plant the okra after the threat of frost is gone. You can find more info at:
