How to Plant Okra


If you are planting okra transplants, be sure to space them 1 to 2 feet apart to give them ample room to grow. Plant okra seeds about ½ to 1 inch deep and 12 to 18 inches apart in a row. You can soak the seeds overnight in tepid water to help speed up germination. Okra plants are tall, so space out the rows 3 to 4 feet apart.
