    I have some young plants that were cuttings from my 2 main plants. Its a very useful perennial veg to have. Its guarantees me fresh greens all through the winter

    Default plant/seed swap

    VC I am intrigued you have seed, I didn't think perennial kale went to seed. Do you know the variety etc.?
    Hi Norfolkgrey (or could I call you Norfolk for short?)
    My late father gave us some "everlasting kale" cuttings as he called them in Essex, but at length we lost the plants, so would like to raise some again - and the variegated form sounds interesting.
    Could we swap some cuttings of each please for some seeds we got from a Southern African relative called makomani - this is a delicious member of the cucurbit family which we have grown very productively in an unheated greenhouse, and with some success outside in a good North Yorkshire summer. Pick while skin is till tender (up to 10" long), peel and boil - Makomani is delicious plain boiled, or mashed with cream, and also makes a great curry.

    Regards, Geoff and Flo

    I have been trying to get hold of some as this could be the answer to my problems of my small garden with no winter sunlight. A tall perennial Kale would give us greens throughout. T@M have nothing like it in the catalogue and the site listed here is out of stock

    Marb, I can send you some seeds I've saved from a tall kale that I've been growing since 2013 if you'd like to try them. This is it:-

    Just wanted to say I wasn't ignoring you I just never saw your post till this morning. Although it has been almost a year since you posted this as your first post and you probably won't see my reply

    Anyone else that posts wanting kale you need to adhere to the forum rules 3months as a member and 50 posts. Stick around and enjoy yourself we are not a bad bunch
