Grow Guide Conditions:
Growing bok choy requires rich, loose soil. Fertilize bok choy early after planting. Once seedlings are about four inches tall, thin to 6 to 10 inches apart. Keep garden well weeded so the weeds don’t take away the nutrients from bok choy plants. Bok Choy does well in cooler temperatures, and does not like the heat.
Grow Guide Seed:
Start transplants inside 4 to 6 weeks before last frost date. Transplant 6 to 12 inches apart in rows 18 to 30 inches apart. Use the closer spacings for smaller varieties. Plant direct-seeded spring crops ¼ to ½ inch deep and about 1 inch apart in rows 18 to 30 inches apart. Thin to 6- to 12-inch spacings. Use thinnings in salads. For fall crops, direct seed ¼ to ½ inch deep in rows 18 to 30 inches apart in summer. Thin to 6- to 12- inch spacings. Or set transplants out at 6- to 12-inch spacings 4 to 6 weeks before first frost.

Grow Guide Harvest:
Harvest bok choy before the hot weather sets in. Bok Choy is an early plant in the garden so harvest happens sooner than most vegetables in the garden.
