Approximate Seed Quantity: 10

Ornamental cabbage and kale (also known as “flowering” cabbage and kale) are in the same species (Brassica oleracea) as edible cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. While ornamental cabbage and kale are edible, they tend to have a bitter flavour and are often used in a culinary setting as garnishes.

The brightly coloured leaves resemble giant flowers that are a great addition to autumnal beds, borders and containers. Cold temperatures serve to intensify the colours. Hardy annual. Download sowing guide
