Description Sowing More Info Delivery
An exciting mix of 4 British-bred varieties perfect for the British climate. Mix includes Black Magic (uniform Cavolo Nero type), Red Devil (unique purple veined Cavolo Nero), Pentland Brig (super sweet heritage variety) and Seaweed F1 ( frilly leaves with darker purple-green colour). Kale is increasingly popular due to the documented health benefits and is considered by many as the number one superfood. Low in calories with zero fat and high in fibre and vitamin C, this winter hardy mix can be used for year round cropping. Use for salad leaf, stir fries, or traditional steaming and boiling. The sweet leaves can also be juiced for a nutritious smoothie. With medium height and vigour this is the perfect mix for small veg patches and square metre plantings.

Companion planting: Try growing kale with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.

Sow Kale seed from March to June. Direct sow outdoors into a well prepared seedbed, for transplanting to their final positions later on. Sow at a depth of 1cm (1/2") and distance of 23cm (9") between rows. Kale plants can be transplanted to their final positions approximately 5 weeks from sowing.

Grow kale in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Apply lime to acid soils to reduce the acidity and lessen the risk of clubroot. When transplanting kale, plant it slightly deeper in the ground than it was in the seedbed. Plant kale at a distance of 60cm (24") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
