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.
