Cultivation advice Vegetables Perilla Shiso Red

  • Sow thinly in trays undercover from early Apr through to mid-summer, lightly covering the seed and keeping out of direct sunlight until germinated..
  • The growing medium should be free draining as the seed can rot if too wet.  Early sowings will need additional warmth provided.
  • Germination 14-28 days at 70F.
  • Transplant when large enough to handle and gradually acclimatise outdoors after all danger of frost has passed.  Best planted out in full sun in free draining soil.
  • Harvest leave when young and tender.  Both the flowers and subsequent seeds are also edible.
