    Default Daubenton's (perennial) kale- where can I get some?

    Anyone know?

    Or even better, does anyone have a bit I could swap for something? I have a random selection of herbs and plants I could take cuttings from in exchange.

    Thanks!

    Ooh, thanks! Pennards are fairly local, so I might even manage to get to an open day!

    And if I don't, I might take you up on that Veggiechicken (though I didn't know you could get seeds!), it's maybe a bit late for starting it off from seed this year though, so I'all try track down a plant first...

    If you remind me in march I can take some cuttings. I have Daubenton, Duabenton Panache (variagated) and Taunton Deane.

    VC I am intrigued you have seed, I didn't think perennial kale went to seed. Do you know the variety etc.?

    The Heritage Seed Library often has Daubenton Kale seeds

    My Daubenton seed came from the HSL - and I've grown some kale from the seeds
