Frozen Kale

Postby peter » Sun Jan 01, 2006 5:06 pm

I have grown two types of kale this year, Redbor and Green, in two different spots on the allotment.

The plants which get more sunshine are fine, the more sheltered plants have managed to loose leaves and in some cases the crown to frost damage.

I was under the impression that Kale was very hardy and that it was exposure to sunlight after freezing that caused greater frost damage where a gentle thaw did less.

Any comments?

Dear Peter,
don't get rid of the plants just yet, they may still produce some tender shoots as the weather warms up.
