  • How often does kale need to be watered?

    Keep the kale watered with 1-1 ½ inches of water per week; the soil should be moist down to an inch into the soil. Since potted plants dry out faster than those in the garden, you may need to water container grown kale more often during hot, dry periods.
  • Do kale plants regrow?

    You can pick spring-planted kale all summer, but leaves may get tough and bitter when heat arrives. Quality improves again in fall and plants continue growing even winter in mild climates. Frost makes them taste sweeter, and plants are cold-hardy at least to the low 20s. The following spring, though, they will bolt.
  • How many seeds do you put in each hole?

    Like most things in gardening, there are always exceptions to this rule of 2-3 seeds per hole. If you're planting large seeds like cucumbers, melons, or pumpkins, you should only use one seed per hole. However, you can still plant seeds close together and then thin them out once they've established themselves.
