Growing hemp from seed requires a carefully prepared seed bed, plenty of nutrients and plenty of space for these large, fast growing plants.

If you are lucky enough to be able to obtain licensing and certified seed, you will need to provide the crop with deeply tilled soil with a pH of 6 or higher.
