A lovely winter crop, and really easy to grow, starting Kale now will give you a healthy, big crop to overwinter, and provide you with cabbage like – cut and come again leaves. Some welcome fresh greenery during the colder months.
I have started them in the greenhouse, but need to move them outside pretty soon, otherwise I will stress the plants and cause them to bolt (start flowering) due to stress. Usually once a plant starts doing that, it causes the plant to concentrate on producing flowers, giving the leaves bitter to taste.
