I have a question about Lacinato Kale. We had it growing last season and over the winter, it was left outside without a cover. The leaves wilted during the winter months, but the stalks? stems? are still standing. Will it grow back this growing season, or should I remove it?

Lacinato Kale can withstand temperatures as low as 20 degrees F, so it actually does well during the cold season. However, it is an annual plant and should be re-planted each year. The good news is that, since it is a cold-loving plant, you can get it into the ground 3-4 weeks before the last frost date.

A garden is more than just a collection of plants. It's an expression of the gardener. Children can personalize their gardens in many ways beyond simply growing favorite vegetables and flowers. Create memories that will last beyond this growing season with personalized walkways, animal houses, arches, and much more.
