Fertilise regularly (Super Vegetable). Harden off Seedlings before transplanting by reducing Water slightly. Once the seedlings are 2 inches tall you can transplant them.
Once the plant grows you need to gradually pull up the soil around it, keeping the leaves exposed. Two weeks before harvest, tie the tops. together and mound soil up to the base of the leaves.

The darker the stalks become the more nutrients they will contain but texture changes with color, dark green stalks will be tougher.
