Kale Duo Mix
Kale Duo Mix (Emerald Ice & Midnight Sun). Our Kale Duo Mix Collection includes 10 seeds each of our Emerald Ice and Midnight Sun varieties. The Emerald Ice is an amazing new variety that has the best eating quality of all kales! The textured ruffled leaves develop a striking contrasting white centre as they mature and have the sweetest flavour, even the leaf stalks taste like candy. While the Midnight Sun is a stunning variety with textured, deep-red leaves with a striking mid vein. Suitable for multiple cuts, ‘Midnight Sun’ is very versatile as it is the best variety for use as a baby kaleleaf and also works well as a mature plant.
March – June
How to sow
Sow Kale seed from March to June. Direct sow outdoors into a well prepared seedbed, for transplanting to their final positions later on. Sow at a depth of 1cm (1/2″) and distance of 23cm (9″) between rows. Kale plants can be transplanted to their final positions approximately 5 weeks from sowing.
Grow kale in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Apply lime to acid soils to reduce the acidity and lessen the risk of clubroot. When transplanting kale, plant it slightly deeper in the ground than it was in the seedbed. Plant kale at a distance of 60cm (24″) apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
