DAYS TO GERMINATION: 10-14 days at 70°F (21°C).

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Sow directly in cell packs 6-8 weeks before planting outside. Cover seed with 1/4" of soil. After germination, grow seedlings at 60°F (21°C) for 3-4 weeks. Harden off one week before planting outside. Plants must be set out several weeks before the last frost.
Direct seed: Sow 3 months before expected fall frost, 2 seeds per hole, 6" apart and 1/4" deep. Thin to one plant per hole.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: Once plants are about 6" tall, remove the lower leaves. Repeat 3 or 4 times as the plants grow taller. Provide horizontal netting to prevent the plants from falling over, as they become top heavy.


SOIL REQUIREMENTS: Moist, well-drained soil. Discontinue fertilizing once plants begin to color.


PLANT SPACING: 6". Plants spaced more than 6" will produce heads that are too large for cut flower use.


HARVEST: Kale should have a 6" head on a 24" stem with good coloring. Plants will begin to color once temps. drop below 50°F.
