Kale is an easy to grow brassica which is rich in vitamins and
minerals, especially Vitamins A and C, Iron, Calcium and Potassium.
Kale prefers full sun and a rich well drained soil but will also grow in
less than perfect soil. It does best in cool weather, frosts will sweeten
the plant. It can be used by either picking the outside leaves as it is
growing or picking the whole plant when it is mature. Young leaves
can be used in salads, mature leaves are better cooked.
Sow seed in a seed bed and transplant when seedlings are 7-10cm
high. The soil should be limed and rich compost or manure applied
prior to sowing. As they are growing it is recommended a side
dressing of Sulphate of Ammonia be applied.
