& Maintenance Tips

Before planting kale, remove the scruffy bottom leaves. Plant the kale in the ground so that the crown of leaves is flush with the soil surface. Kale grows and looks fabulous when planted on slopes, doorsteps, desks and patios. Feel free to let them flourish in ground beds and mass plantings as well—they’ll do great! Plant in full sun with plenty of circulation. You should see color after the first frost, then watch them really amaze you with their changing colors. They like to be fed, so fertilize for optimum growth and color!
