Product Information

One of the easiest vegetables to grow, this ultra-hardy, compact kale variety will provide you with highly nutritious, tasty leaves from September through to March.

A British culinary favourite since the mid-19th century, curly kale has had a resurgence in popularity in recent years. This dwarf variety has attractive, dark green, densely frilled leaves that have an extremely sweet taste with no bitterness. It’s highly nutritious too, being rich in vitamins and antioxidants. A versatile ingredient in the kitchen, it is superb when steamed or stir-fried to retain nutrients and texture and the young leaves make a tasty raw addition to salads.

Resilient, vigorous and sturdy, this dwarf kale’s habit will tolerate exposed positions and most soil types; it does exceptionally well in poor soils where other vegetables might struggle, although is equally happy in well-drained, fertile soils. This is a vegetable that positively thrives over winter in Britain, so is a good cut-and-come-again option for continuous harvesting over a long season. Leaves are especially sweet and tasty when picked young from the plant.

If left to flower, the yellow blooms will attract wildlife to your garden, being a great source of nectar and pollen.

Supplied as a packet of approx. 275 seeds ready to sow indoors in a seed tray, or outdoors in their growing position. Plant 45cm (18in) apart June to August and harvest from September onwards through to early spring.

Top Tips

  • Try growing alongside nasturtiums to keep Cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and with mint to repel beetles and other insect pests.
  • When harvesting, cut with a clean, sharp knife to avoid introducing disease or encouraging rot.

Care Information

How to grow Kale

  • Sow outdoors thinly in a seed bed, 1.5cm (½in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil that has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. When seedlings are about 10cm (4in) tall, transplant into rows 45cm (18in) apart in moist but well-drained soil. Plant firmly and water well.
  • Or sow indoors 0.5cm (¼in) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2in) apart to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out.
  • Harvest Pick a few leaves from each plant as required from when the plants are just 5cm (2in) tall; this will encourage new growth as long as you don’t cut the middle of the plant. The crown of the plant can be cut in December to encourage side shoots.
