Pentland Brig Borecole is old-fashioned with a slightly less curled leaf than most standard kales. It has a distinct paler leaf, yet it is extremely winter hardy. It can be sown from March, either as a standard kale and the whole leaves used shredded; or it can be grown with closer spacing and used at 'teen' leaf size. Eat young leaves raw, which have a milder flavour. All leaves taste great when lightly stir-fried or steamed to retain their natural goodness.
WHEN TO SOW
March to June
WHERE TO SOW
Sow the seeds thinly in a well prepared seed bed 1.5cm (1/2") deep in rows 15cm apart.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
As the seedlings appear, thin to 7cm apart. When they are about 15cm (6") tall, transplant to the growing site about 60cm apart, planting so the lowest leaves are just above the soil.
September to January
Can also be sown in succession from March onwards and used as a baby leaf in salads.
Rich in Pro-vitamin A, C, Iron and Folic Acid.
