  • Ideal for growing in windswept gardens or on poor soils
  • Attractive, dark, tightly frilled leaves
  • Exceptionally hardy

This popular, compact curly Kale is ideal for growing in windswept gardens or on poor soils. Kale 'Dwarf Green Curled' produces attractive, dark, tightly frilled leaves of excellent quality. Like all Kale this variety is exceptionally hardy, standing well in the harshest of weather. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").

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

Sowing

Sow seed from March to May. 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.
