Okra thrives in warm temperatures, so you should start your seeds indoors 3 to 4 weeks before the last expected frost in your region. Before planting, soak the seeds overnight to promote germination. Plant 2-3 seeds per pot and choose the strongest one as the plant grows. Once all risk of frost has passed, plant them in full sun about 12 to 16 inches apart. When the plants reach a height of about 4 inches, add mulch around their base to retain moisture and control weeds.
