Kohl Rabi





Planting Timelines

    - Kohl Rabi can be grown in containers or in soil beds. For containers growing, make sure you have large enough pots
    - For soil beds, you will be starting the plants off indoors first in small pots or cell trays
    - Fill your pots or cell trays with compost and press down lightly to firm the soil
    - Water the soil prior to sowing your seeds
    - Create small wells approx. a quarter of an inch deep and sow 2 seeds per cell at least an inch apart
    - Cover the seeds with compost and gently pat down to firm, giving the soil another light watering
    - The seeds will take approx. 2 weeks to germinate.
    - If the seedlings are growing fast, pot on to larger containers as required
    - After about 7 weeks, the plants are ready to transplant out to a soil bed outside
    - Create holes in your soil bed of equal size to the pots where the seedlings have been growing
    - Squeeze the sides of your pots to gently pull out the plants and place them into the holes created
    - Harvest when the Kohl Rabi has reached your preferred size
