To grow full size kale plants, sow your seeds indoors in soil trays or pots 6-8 weeks before your last frost. They should be planted 1/4 inch deep and will take 3-10 days to germinate. Plant your seedlings outdoors just before the last frosts of the season and place them 24 inches apart. They will mature about 62 days after they are transplanted.
