Kale - Reflex
Recent breeding has given Kale Reflex more intensely curled, succulent and nutritious, dark leaves which stand well without yellowing and can be picked for much of the year from successional sowings. Kale Reflex is fully winter hardy. These seeds are in the RHS Vegetable Collection.
Sow seeds from March to June, in succession, for an extended harvest. Sow seeds thinly in a well prepared seedbed, 13mm deep in drills 23cm apart. Transplant when large enough to handle, about five weeks from sowing, to 5cm between plants each way. Plant firmly and keep well watered until established. Fleece against caterpillar and aphid as necessary, and net against pigeons during the winter months.
