Garden Tips To Plant Okra

As a warm-weather crop, okra appreciates full sun. Okra is adaptable and will grow in most soils, though it performs best in well-drained soil that's rich in organic matter. Soil should ideally be on the acidic side, with a pH between 5.8 and 7.0.

How to Plant Okra

If you are planting okra transplants, be sure to space them 1 to 2 feet apart to give them ample room to grow.

Plant okra seeds about ½ to 1 inch deep and 12 to 18 inches apart in a row. ...

Okra plants are tall, so space out the rows 3 to 4 feet apart.


Sow the seeds one inch deep in rows that are three feet apart. The seeds generally germinate in two to 12 days. Okra will grow in many soil types, so mulch and fertilize as needed. Once the plants start to grow, thin them so they are spaced 12 to 18 inches apart.
