How to grow okra
Before sowing okra seed, soak it in warm water for two hours to help germinations.
Sow seed 1cm deep in pots then transplant into a larger pot in a greenhouse (preferable) or outdoors in a sheltered site.
Water okra plants in dry weather and mulch to conserve moisture. Stake taller plants and remove the growing tips of fast-growing shoots to encourage
Regularly cut okra pods for a continuous supply. Pick pods when they're young (2-10cm long) as older okra pods can become stringy. Okra pods are easily bruised so handle gently!
