More Details

An ideal kale for a productive, edible pot, which looks splendid, as well as tasting good. We harvest the small leaves for salad and use the larger leaves as wilted greens. Keep picking out the top and the plants should branch and keep producing.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow March-early August. Can be started under cover (in individual cells or gutters to minimise root disturbance) or sow direct April-July. Regular sowings made every two to three weeks will ensure a continuous supply. Kale are very hardy and grow in poorer soils than other brassicas. They like a sunny spot, on well-drained soil. Keep well-watered. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out.
Care Tips Grows best on soil which has been manured the previous autumn. Firm the soil well around the plant base to prevent wind rock and keep moist. Protect against cabbage white butterflies. May also be grown in containers.
Storing Store in the fridge for up to 10 days, or in the freezer for 6 months.
Harvesting Harvest baby leaves from June or mature plants from September. Keep picking and it keeps producing, don’t let it run to flower.
