Once a staple of the 19th century cottagers’ diet, this ‘perennial’ kale has fallen out of favour simply because the leaves don't store well for sale. Packed with vitamins and minerals, this heritage superfood supplies tasty green leaves with purple stems all through the winter followed by a bonus secondary crop of side shoots in early spring, making it a generous and space efficient vegetable. A short-lived perennial, plants will crop for up to five years, but can easily be renewed from cuttings. An unusual cross between a kale and brussels sprout re-crossed with purple sprouting broccoli, its complex parentage even intrigued Charles Darwin.  Sturdy and exceptionally hardy. Can be picked as a baby leaf for salads or left to mature for cooking. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Live Plants

Dobies strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
