The Q&A Archives: Collard Greens

Question: We planted collard greens last year for the first time, and will they produce again this year or do we have to plant new plants?

Answer: Collard greens can provide two crops if the entire top of the plant is cut down in the spring. A fall crop will be then be produced. But the roots are frost tender so if you left them in the ground in hopes of new spring growth, you may be disappointed. Plan on sowing seeds every spring and then harvesting twice before your winter freeze.
