Growing Kale

light

Kale is a cool weather crop and enjoys plenty of sunlight in winter, but as summer approaches it will need a cool spot or it will be especially bitter. In summer, rather grow it in light shade and keep the soil cool with bark mulch. 

Water & humidity

Keep the soil fairly moist. The leaves will wilt if they get hot and thirsty.

Feeding

Kale loves nitrogen-rich soil & fertiliser. Feed regularly. You can also use kraal manure when preparing the soil to increase nitrogen content.

Re-potting

Kale is an annual or bi-annual crop, so won't need to be re-potted. It will eventually go to seed and need to be replaced.

Atrium Top Tip

Kale is ready to harvest when the leaves are about the size of your hand. Avoid picking the terminal bud (found at the top centre of the plant) becuase this keeps the plant productive. The chill of a light winter frost actually improves the flavour of Kale.

Quirky plant fact

Kale has become such a popular superfood that farming of it has increased 60% since 2016. Kale is considered a cancer fighter as it contains cancer preventers like glucosinolate and phytonutrients that protect against development of tumors and block cancer causing enzymes.
