Dwarf Blue Curled Scotch Kale is a variety of kale known for its blue-green, curled leaves, and sweet, nutty flavor. This variety is particularly used in salads, soups, and stews. It's a cold-hardy vegetable and can tolerate frost and some light snow.
To grow Dwarf Blue Curled Scotch Kale, you will need:
Well-drained, fertile soil
Full sun or partial shade
Seeds or seedlings
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds or transplant seedlings in the early spring, or in the fall in mild climates. Space the plants about 12 inches apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the kale regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the kale with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Keep the kale plants free of weeds and remove any diseased or damaged leaves to help prevent disease.
Harvest the kale leaves as needed, starting from the bottom of the plant, leaving the upper leaves to mature and continue growing.
