One of the prettiest of all the kales with a dense head of intricately frilled leaves on a robust plant about 60cm tall. Despite its delicate looks, this kale is incredibly hardy and shrugs off the harshest of winters, providing plenty of delicious pickings through the coldest months of the year.

  • Growing Instructions: Sow direct into drills in a well-prepared seed bed in spring and thin seedlings to 7cm apart as they grow. When they reach about 15cm tall, transplant to their final growing site, leaving about 60cm between plants. Keep well-watered and protect from pigeons until established: cut young leaves from the crown of the plant once they reach about 10-15cm long. If you cut the whole crown out at once and leave to grow on and you'll get a secondary crop of tender broccoli-like shoots just beneath the cut.

  • Sow: May-July

  • Harvest: November onwards
