Planting Tips for Heirloom Colard Greens:

Start spring seedlings 4-5 weeks before transplanting.  Start fall transplants 2-3 months before first frost.  Transplant out to the garden when 3” tall, at least 90 days before your first frost in midsummer.  When transplanting, enrich soil with a little blood and bone meal.  Will tolerate warmer temperatures than other cole crops.  Keeping soil evenly moist is a must for a healthy crop.

Seeding Rate for Heirloom Collard Greens:

60,000-70,000 plants/acre,

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
