TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN
As soon as ground can be worked in spring, prepare a well-drained, fertile garden bed in full sun. Sow groups of 3 seeds each 10-12 in. apart and 1/2 in. deep, in rows 12-18 in. apart. Keep soil evenly moist. When seedlings are 3 in. tall, thin to just 1 seedling per group. Sow again in late summer for another cold-hardy crop.
TO START INDOORS
Sow seeds in a container of seed starting mix 2 inch. apart and cover 1/2 inch. deep. Keep moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are 3 to 4 inch. tall then plant outdoors.
THIN OR TRANSPLANT
Space 10 to 12 inch. apart so plants have room to mature.
Kale tastes best in cool weather so sow spring crops early. If sown in late summer, kale will yield through fall and winter except in the coldest climates. Frost actually enhances kale leaves' colour, flavor and sweetness. Mulch to retain moisture in summer and before the ground freezes to protect the roots of fall crops.
