I sowed kale late last year and have about 10 plants in 9cm pots which overwintered in the greenhouse. They are about six inches tall with about 4 leaves. Will they come to anything if I plant them out now the weather is warming or have I missed the boat?
This year sow your seeds in late spring, grow them on plant them into their final positions in mid/late summer and you’ll get a crop you can harvest around now onwards ... known as the Hungry Gap it’s the time of year when there’s not a lot of homegrown fresh veg around.
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
It produced good leaves all through winter.
The kalettes appeared a couple of weeks ago and they were delicious - almost like sprouting broccoli.
I pulled the plants yesterday.
