Nutritious, delicious and bountiful, kale is well worth growing, and September is a good time to plant them. In this video guide from Gardeners’ World, Monty Don shows you how to plant out young kale plants, either grown from seed or bought from a garden centre. He takes you through the key steps to preparing the soil and planting, and recommends two tasty and attractive varieties – ‘Cavalo Nero’ and ‘Jagallo Nero’ – for harvests in late winter and spring.
