Ultimate Autumn to Spring Brassicas Collection

  • Catalogue Code 1080-5405
  • Pack Contents: 64 Plants, 16 of each listed

New to 2016. Treat yourself to a generous crop of nutritious and tasty leafy greens to see you from the end of summer to the start of the following spring. Collection includes 16 young plants each of kale ‘Black Magic’, sprouting broccoli ‘White Eye’, purple broccoli ‘Extra-Early Rudolph’ and cauliflower ‘Clemen’.

Growing greens through the winter is so rewarding and keeps your green fingers active during the months when less is happening in the garden.

Collection includes 16 young plants each of:

Kale 'Black Magic' - Stands up to our winter weather well, the foliage is darker and plants are more uniform with good stability and bolt resistance. It cooks quickly, keeping its rich dark colour. The leaves have a wonderful flavour and delicate texture.

Sprouting Broccoli 'White Eye' - A very uniform variety producing a prolific crop of delicious tender spears from February to April. Brimming with vitamins A, C and E and a host of other health-giving properties, broccoli is regarded by nutritionists as a superfood high in cancer-defying phytochemicals.

Purple Broccoli 'Extra-Early Rudolph' - High quality broccoli will begin to crop in early autumn but is at its best from November to February. Good sized, tender spears are produced on large framed plants. Brimming with vitamins and is regarded by nutritionists as a superfood, high in cancer-fighting phytochemicals.

Cauliflower 'Clemen' - Proved to be very winter-hardy, capable of withstanding frost and snow- so no need to worry about its fate in the winter months. Throughout summer, keep removing surrounding weeds, so 'Clemen' gets the maximum water, light and nutrients from the soil. It will then reward you with healthy white heads the following spring.

Arrived quickly but two sets of the four plant types were lilt more than stalks with no leaves. These have not fared well at all since planting. The others are doing fine.
