• Choose a sunny location (6+ hours of sun) and dig a hole about two times as wide as your pot.

• Remove your plant from the pot by loosening the soil and tipping it out into your hand. Place your plant in the soil about as deep as it was in the pot.

• Refill the space around your plant with soil and press lightly to compact the dirt, keeping your plant firmly in the ground.

• Water immediately to settle the soil, and add more soil as needed, bringing it level to the rest of your garden.

Keep soil evenly moist. Feed with a vegetable fertilizer to ensure your bountiful harvest.
Water as needed all season to keep soil evenly moist, keeping your eye out for the first sign of wilt. Wilting is a sure sign that your okra needs water. Feed with a vegetable fertilizer to ensure your bountiful harvest.
Too many okra picked to eat at one time? You can easily store the pods in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
