Description

An ideal kale for a productive, edible pot, which looks splendid, as well as tasting good. We harvest the small leaves for salad and use the larger leaves as wilted greens. Keep picking out the top and the plants should branch and keep producing.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Grows best on soil which has been manured the previous autumn. Protect against cabbage white butterflies with fine netting. Firm the soil well around plant base to prevent wind rock and provide stakes to support tall plants in autumn.
