Sow the Seeds
Kai Choy seeds are easy to start. You can direct sow the seeds in your garden two weeks before the last frost or start them indoors at about the same time. Sow seeds shallowly, typically about ¼” deep in prepared soil. You should space seeds about 6″ apart in rows 6″-12″ apart. You can grow leaf mustard in pots or containers, too. Its fast growth means a rapid harvest, and you won’t need to spend an entire season caring for the plant.
Like many brassica plants, Kai Choy mustard greens can adapt to a wide range of soil types and pH values.
It does best in neutral to somewhat acidic soils, and gardeners will benefit from turning aged manure and compost into the soil before planting. You can improve your soil by turning it with manure in the fall before spring planting. An ideal soil for mustard greens is loamy and well-draining.
