Cultivation Advice Kale Ornamental Fringed Mix Brassica OLERACEA

  • Ornamental Kale and Cabbage have differing germination requirements.  Please note Cabbage seeds require light to germinate and are surface sown / Kale is best lightly covered with growing medium.
  • For both, the seed should be sown in trays / pots from Mid Summer prior to the cooler weather approx 7-8 weeks before planting to the final growing position..
  • Soil germination temperature of 65-70 F is ideal.  They will not germinate if cold.
  • Germination 7-10 days.
  • Transplant to trays when large enough to handle and grow on.  They need to be at least 5 in prior to planting out.
  • When transplanting to an outdoor container or bed, remove the tatty bottom leaves and plant with the crown of leaves flush with the surface of the soil
  • It is best not to plant Brassica crops in the same spot in successive years.
