When to Plant:

  • Collard greens are a cool season vegetable, and are often planted in late summer to early autumn for winter harvest in the south.
  • Very cold hardy (harvest can continue right through snow), you will find that frost improves the flavor of collard greens!
  • In more northern areas, collards may be planted mid-to-late summer for an abundant supply of this dark-green leafy vegetable for fall or winter harvest.
  • You can also plant early in the Spring when weather is cool and frost has passed, but make sure to maintain adequate moisture for summer crops.

How to Grow:

  • Direct sowing Collard seeds is the recommended practice, but it is possible to get a head start on the crops and start indoors.
  • If you want to start indoors, do so 3-4 weeks before last frost, ¼ - ½ inches deep.
  • Keep the soil moist at 70 degrees F.
  • As soon as seedling emerge, provide plenty of light on a sunny windowsill, or grow them 3-4 inches under fluorescent lights for 16 hours a day, off for 8 hours.
  • Raise lights as they grow taller.
  • Please note, the plants will need to be accustomed to outside life before transplanting them. You can get them ready for the garden by moving them to a location sheltered from wind and hot sun, bringing them back inside if frost is a threat.
  • Sow directly ¼ to ½ deep into your garden in rows 30 inches apart.
  • Make sure area has well-drained soil in full sun.
  • Seedlings emerge in 10-21 days depending on weather and soil conditions.

When to Harvest:

  • Harvest whole plants at about 6-8 inches. If sown in the fall, wait until after a light frost to improve flavor.
  • Alternatively, you can pick bottom leaves as needed, and inner buds will continue to produce.
  • Wrap harvested leaves in a damp paper towel and put in a perforated plastic bag to store in refrigerator.
