Description Sowing Delivery Reviews

An exceptionally fine flavoured variety that has the best eating quality of all kales. The textured ruffled leaves of Kale Emerald Ice develop a striking contrasting white centre as they mature and have the sweetest flavour - even the leaf stalks taste like candy and hold the crispiest texture. Excellent winter hardiness makes kale a useful winter to spring vegetable at a time when fresh garden produce is scarce. Fresh leaves of Kale 'Emerald Ice' can be picked regularly form October to April Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24").

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

1 kale emerald ice packet (20 seeds) (61415)

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.
