- Easy to grow, for baby leaf or mature winter plants. Unusual dark wrinkled leaves, can be eaten raw or cooked. Excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A.
- A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
- Recommended by Jekka McVicar in BBC Gardeners World Magazine (January 2015 edition): “This kale is a brilliant winter/spring vegetable, when there is little fresh produce in the garden. It withstands the vagaries of winter weather and looks stunning, with its attractive, dark-green leaves.”
Sow & Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly April-September, in a seed bed, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, moist, fertile soil. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin to 45cm (18") apart. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required. Keep moist. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Harvest baby leaves from June. Or sow indoors, March-May, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in a tray of compost. Keep warm and moist. A temperature of 15°C (60°F) is ideal. Transplant 5cm (2") apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, 45cm (18") apart, during May-June, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest mature plants from September to March.
