Collard Greens thrive in full sun to partial shade and require no stratification. Sow the seeds directly outdoors at a depth of 1/4 inch in well-draining soil. Space the plants 18-24 inches apart, with 24-36 inches between rows. Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the germination period, which typically takes 7-10 days. These greens tolerate light frost and can be harvested in cooler temperatures for a sweeter taste.
