I was given a red amaranth plant in a pot. Should i keep it in the pot until september or would it be okay to plant now? Also have bunching onions, garden mint and green basil. was hoping to put them all in the same planter box. ?

Amaranth is best sown into the spot it will grow and left alone. If it is in a pot, you can just leave it and it will flower and seed for you to collect more seeds when the flowers dry out and then you can plant more wherever you like the next time you sow :) Beautiful plant with very striking colours.
