Growing kale in the winter garden

Kale is a delicious, nutritious leafy green that makes a great addition to your winter garden! This short video shares some helpful tips for growing this “super green”…

Kale is a great crop to grow in the winter. Even in Central Ohio and Northern locations, it may survive the winter with just a bit of protection – and the cold weather actually gives it a delicious sweetness that’s hard to beat!

We grow kale in our winter garden every year, and not only does it provide us with tasty greens in the fall and into the winter months, but it almost always overwinters and gives us a whole new crop the next spring and early summer. In fact, we have had some kale plants live all the way through 3 growing seasons with minimal protection!

This short video shares some tips and information on growing kale in the winter garden, including some reasons to grow this nutritious leafy green, when to plant, how to plant and grow kale, good cold-hardy varieties, and more.

You’ll also learn about plant spacing, fertilizing, watering, harvesting, common pests that affect kale plants, protecting your kale from winter weather, and growing kale in various growing zones.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
