To grow Florida Broadleaf Mustard, you will need:
Well-drained, fertile soil
Full sun or partial shade
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds in the spring, after the last frost date or in the fall. Space the seeds about 1/4 inch deep and 1/2 inch apart in rows.
Water the mustard greens regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Thin the seedlings to about 6 inches apart when they are large enough to handle.
Fertilize the mustard greens with an organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Harvest the mustard greens leaves as needed, starting from the bottom of the plant, leaving the upper leaves to mature and continue growing.
