Time to Plant Your Kale Garden

Posted on

If you’re looking for a way to grow your own salad greens, look no further than kale. Relatively easy to grow, kale is a nutritional powerhouse – boasting huge amounts of vitamins A, C, and K. Plant your kale in mid-July and you can expect a harvest in the fall. We have a few tips for creating space for your kale patch.

  1. Prepare a bed of light, nutrient-rich soil. If the soil in your backyard leaves a lot to be desired, go to your local hardware store and pick up a bag. Use natural fertilizers to build in extra nutrients, which in turn gives your garden better chances of growing.
  2. Plant kale seeds in small biodegradable pots, so the seedlings don’t have extra stress while being transferred. These Peat Pots can be planted directly in the ground.
  3. When it’s time to put them in the ground, space the pots 8-12 inches apart so that each kale bunch has space to grow.
  4. Water the plants regularly, with a moderate amount of water. Make sure you don’t overwater!
