    Default Nine Star Perennial Broccoli

    Has anyone got some seeds/cuttings of this please? I can offer cuttings of Bocking 14 comfrey/horseradish/Daubenton kale/ Daubenton Panaché kale in return.

    Thanks.

    Hi Paulie, I have some seeds I saved last year that I could send you. A Panache cutting would be great!!

    Can I ask if this perennial tastes like ordinary broccoli??? Is it tough???
    I like the idea of a perennial.

    Its more like cauliflower to taste - quite mild. See my thread for pictures of the one I ate yesterday.

    If anyone else would like some seeds, I'm always happy to swap for something surprising!!

    EDIT - All seeds taken - sorry.

    Hi, interesting topic. I am trying to grow more perennials this year to save myself a lot of hassle. I was looking at the 9 star broccoli too but I really dislike cauliflower though I love broccoli. What do the kale taste like? I have some perennial seeds that I can swap you for. Trying my hand at seakale, salad burnet etc. No luck with good king henry thus far. Chard was a success last year so I will continue with that this year. Any other suggestions? Apparently I am meant to post 50 times before i can do any swaps so it might be too late for me this year. It is an almost full time job to dig and plant half an acre of vegetables, not to mention the mowing.

    Hi and welcome!
    You could try perennial Babington leeks and Welsh onions.
    I may have some more 9 Star cauli/broccoli seeds available later this year s, become an active member of the forum, post 50 times, wait 3 months, and you can join the seed swaps and circles.
