  1. Question

    If I’m not mistaken I believe the plan is to be harvested either the second or third year, since I live in a seasonal climb it was brutal winters would you recommend that I keep it in a pot indoors?

      Hello Rasheda,
      This is a rampant weed and will produce in a single season. It probably doesn’t need to be potted up for the winter.
