TUTO : Homemade Linen
Step 1. Prepare soil : remove weeds, homogenize it. Linen isn’t demanding, no need to obtain a special soil !
Step 2. Saw seeds while ensuring to well espace it from each other. Recover seeding with 1 to 2 cm of soil and delicately crame it with your hands flat.
Step 3. Wait for ten days, young shoots of few centimetres will appear ! Two months are required to see the first flowers blooming. Linen blossoms in the morning, the petals with the heat effect, fall in the begining of the afternoon. Other flowers will appear the next day.
Step 4. In the fields, linen isn’t irrigated : rainwater is enough. In a pot, ensure to give it a bit of water.
