Champion Collard seeds are a cold resistant variety, that can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked, or three to four weeks before the final frost of the season. Sow the collard seeds around ¼” deep in rich soil with a pH between 6 and 7. These seeds can also be started indoors and transplanted if the outdoor environment is too harsh. Be sure to choose an area with full sun for your Champion Collard plants to grow. These seeds will need plenty of water to germinate, as well as throughout their growth, and it is recommended to provide them with one to one and a half inches of water each week. When watering hre collard heads, keep them dry to prevent disease. After around 75 days, the collard greens will be ready for harvest. Harvest the leaves individually or as a whole head. Keep the base of the head intact so that the collard seeds can continue to produce all season long.
