Kale, also known as Borecole, has had a resurgence in popularity recently, and for good reason. It is rich in iron plus vitamins C, A, K and E and of all the brassicas, is very easy to grow.

Kale F1 Kapitan is full of flavour and an early and reliable cropper.

**During World War 2, the cultivation of kale (and other vegetables) in the U.K. was encouraged by the Dig for Victory campaign because it was easy to grow and provided important nutrients missing from a diet because of rationing.

Size guide - Tray of 20 Plug Plants 

Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

This variety of Kale can be planted out into your vegetable patch as soon as the ground is warm.  Transplant the young plants into their final positions when they have 5-7 true leaves.  Space 45cm apart.

Kale will grow on poor soils although you will get more abundant cropping if the soil is given a spring feed or better still, the area has been enriched with compost or well-rotted manure.

If planted later in the season, kale can be harvested throughout the winter months when other fresh vegetables are scarce.  Kale is extremely hardy, and a light frost can increase the sweetness of the attractive green leaves.

Like all brassicas, pigeons and other birds can be a nuisance so you can protect your crops by covering with netting or fleece.
