Botanical Interests Blue Curled Kale Seeds
55 days. Dwarf Blue Curled kale is extremely hardy and will overwinter in all but the coldest climates. Like most greens, grows best in cool weather but will also withstand some heat. Leaves are rich in vitamins and minerals, and low in calories. The flavor of the leaves is actually improved by frost! You will really enjoy kale, particularly in winter soups!
This packet sows four 10-foot rows.
When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost for a late spring/ summer crop, late-summer for a fall crop, fall for very early spring crop (or winter crop in USDA zone 7 or warmer). Seed can also be sown in successive sowings every 3 weeks starting in early spring.
When to start inside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost. For a fall crop, start 4 to 6 weeks before average first fall frost.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
