Kale Seeds

KaleGrowing suggestions for kale seeds

Sow kale seeds from March in modules/pots and transplant after 4-5 weeks. Make sure to plant right up to the first true leaves and ‘firm-in’ in the plants well when planting – they will not be happy in loose soil. Alternatively direct sow outdoors from May in drills 50cm apart and thin to final spacing. Thinnings are a delicious addition to salad.

Crop History

Kale has been known and grown for over 2,000 years. It has many names in many languages, as a result of its great antiquity and widespread use. The cultivation of this leafy vegetable of the mustard family (Brassicaceae) was encouraged during World War II because it provided vital nutrients and was available to supplement rationing as it is easy to grow. Not least has it recently been considered a ‘super food’ because the nutrients in kale can help boost well-being and prevent a range of health problems.
