Growing Collard Greens.

Most known for Southern collard greens with ham hocks and hot sauce, these tasty greens can be stuffed, sautéd, added to soups and more. A prolific producer in cool climates, collards thrive in the fall where it is warm.

Heirloom collard green seeds are easy to sow directly in the garden. In cool climates, plant early spring, at 1/2″ depth, 12″ to 18″ apart in 2 1/2′ to 3′ wide rows. Evenly moist, fertile soil with full sun is optimum, but they will tolerate light afternoon shade. Start 6 to 8 weeks before fall frost date in warm climates. Collard greens are a high yielding crop in a garden tower on a deck for those with limited garden space.

Good companion crops are garlic, onions, thyme, rosemary, nasturtiums and radishes. Bad companion crops are tomatoes, beans, mustard and strawberries.
