How To Grow Mustard Greens From SeedsLike other leafy greens, mustard greens seeds are also sown directly in final pots or grow bags. Mustard is a cool-weather vegetable so make sure to plant it at a temperature between 10-18°C. If the temperature is 23°C or higher, then mustard will bolt and the taste becomes hot and bitter.

Give light water to the soil by using a watering can. Keep the seedling in a sunny area, mustard seeds will be germinated within 5-10 days but sometimes seeds can take more or less time to germinate. Keep the seedling moist and avoid overwatering.
Best Fertilize For Mustard GreensIf you add organic fertilizer such as cow manure, vermicompost, or neem cake to the soil at the time of planting and use well-draining nutrient-rich soil, then the mustard plant does not need any feed.
