Looking after your plants....

Kale, like most brassicas, is fairly hassle free. Follow these tips and you’ll do just fine.


Kale

Feed them

Make sure plants don’t dry out – regular watering is important during dry spells. Use a liquid feed once they’ve started to grow a little, as they need a little extra nitrogen.

Kale

Protect them

Keep weeds down and cover with a netting to keep birds away

Storage Tips

Harvest kale as you want to eat it – it will store in the fridge for a few days, but is much better cooked fresh.

Ways to cook

We quite like cooking up a super kale and potato hash with a poached egg for brunch. A great start to the day!
