  • Planting Instructions

    When to Plant:

    • Kale can be planted at any time, from early spring to early summer. Be mindful, as hot weather makes kale bitter.
    • If planted late in the summer, you can harvest it from fall until the ground freezes.

    How to Grow:

    • Plant ¼ to ½ inch deep in an area with well-drained, loamy soil.
    • If planting in cool season, select an area that will get full sun. Choose partial shade if growing in the warm season.
    • Seeds will sprout best in soil around 70 degrees F.
    • After 2 weeks, thin seedlings so they are spaced 8 to 12 inches apart.
    • Water the plants regularly, but take care not to over water.
    • Mulch the soil heavily after first freeze. The plants can sometimes produce leaves throughout the winter.

    When to Harvest:

    • Kale is ready to harvest when the leaves are about the size of your hands.
    • Avoid picking the terminal bud at the top center of the plant, as this will keep the plant productive.
    • Only pick about a fistful of leaves per harvest.
    • Kale grows until it’s about 20 degrees F - a touch of frost actually sweetens the flavor.

great germination rate. The seeds I sowed are still in the early stages, but all the guys are looking healthy so far. No complaints.
