    Default Planning a Perennial front garden

    Good evening all

    I was hoping to magically find someone who know where to buy Nine Star Broccoli seeds? I have found one company who sells the actual plants but was hoping to find the seeds from somewhere...

    Planning to try my front garden as a bit of a perennial veg garden, I have walking onions planted, sea kale seeds, tree cabbage seeds looking maybe at the idea of Good King Henry and then maybe add more next year.

    Regards

    Nine Star broccoli seeds are very elusive. What about Daubenton kale, asparagus, rhubarb and globe articokes.?

    Thank you for quick reply, asparagus, rhubarb and globe articokes are already in my back garden from previous year I will head off to look at the Kale variety now, I guess I may need to buy the plants instead of being stubborn wanting seeds.....

    Babington leeks are a must-grow
    What about perennial herbs like bay, rosemary, sage, thyme - they always look attractive.

    Do have my little herb area at my back door, leave my chives to self seed, Parsley did self seed last year but growth wasn't that great so still had to sow... have you grown Sea Kale?
