Growing Calendar for Kale Black Magic x 16 - Plants
Delivery: Early May to Mid May
Black Magic is an improved form of the Italian Black Kale and has been specially bred for UK home growers so they can enjoy growing it in the UK climate.
It stands up to our winter weather so well, the foliage is darker and plants are more uniform than Italian Black Kale. Marshalls praises it for its good stability and bolt resistance.
Black Magic cooks quickly, keeping its rich dark colour. The leaves have a unique flavour and delicate texture. Some people blitz kale but we recommend you simply steam to enjoy the unique texture of the whole leaves.
From just 16 plants you can take advantage of weeks of harvest. Plant to furnish two average allotment rows.
The Kale Magic is not currently doing very well. Consulting "the books" it seems we have planted them out about a month too early. We assumed that if Marshalls are selling, then it's ready to be planted outside unless stated otherwise. But it may also be our lack of experience. We'll have to see what happens.
The plants came ok but have all since died despite being planted after a drink; my first order for plants from Marshalls and probably my last - poor
Plants were rather leggy on arrival, so I have potted them on. They have all taken and I will plant them out shortly.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
