Lacinato Kale seeds can be grown in all grow zones with full or partial sun. Directly sow the seeds 1/4" deep in moist, rich soil, with a pH level between 6.5 and 6.8. Space the seeds 15-18" apart with 2 feet between rows. While growing, the soil must be kept moist, but care must be taken to not over water the plants. The outer leaves can be harvested between 55-65 days after sowing. Continuous harvesting is possible if the bud is kept intact.
