Sow kale seeds from March to May in pots or trays using a good free-draining seed compost and cover with 6mm (1?4”) of vermiculite or compost and maintain at a minimum temperature of 15C (60F) until after germination, which takes 5-7 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle after about 5 weeks from sowing to 50cm (20in) between rows and 40cm (16in) between plants in the row. Plant firmly and keep well-watered until established.
Alternatively, seed can be sown thinly 12mm (1?2in) deep in a prepared seedbed outside, allowing 30cm (12in) between rows.
