Kale Seedlings

NewBoy2NewBoy2 BristolPosts: 1,529

I sowed just 6 kale seeds in a tray and I now have 13 seedlings because there were some other seeds in the compost I got from my local GC

I have looked on the interweb as we call it in Bristol and still cant seem to be able to identify a kale seedling so I can then plant out ONLY the kales

Help please  image

    If they're big enough to plant put someone will be able to ID them from a photo.

    Have you tried googling kale seedlings and looking at images

     

  • Just googled, there are loads of images. image

    Just had a thought....do kale seeds produce more than one seedling ?

    If they do that may explain why I have 13 seedlings from 6 seeds

    One seed, one plant is the best offerimage

    how many different seedlings have you got?

    My maximum is 3 right nowimage

    Just potted them all up and there is a small  difference in the leaf shape between 6 of the 13 so that may give me a clue to what is growing

    There were obviously seeds in the bag of compost I got from the GC

    Its very exciting waiting to see what comes from the other 7  image

    One seedling which I believe to be the kale has a leaf shaped like a stinging nettle whilst the other imposters are shaped more rounded

    Thanks Edd

    Your first one looks more like  them

    I took pots with what I think is kale and also the intruder back to the GC that I got the compost from

    They think the odd ones MAY be radish

    Its getting almost to exciting to bear !!  image
