Kale

    19 responses

Julie starts with ...
Does anyone have some spare kale seeds I could buy? I can't find them for sale anywhere, seedlings either (except ornamental kale).

I would prefer the softer leaf Siberian kale, or something like it - I was very disappointed with Tuscan kale a couple of years ago.

March is an excellent month in Perth for planting winter veggies, so I am all fired up to go!

I have chou moellier which is a nice dark green kale but grows fairly tall.. a kind of perennial which stays with you for some years. Nice soft dark green leaves, plus dwarf kale if you can't find anything locally.

I was trying to avoid buying from seed companies - I only want one packet of seeds, and the postage costs start to mke it a little expensive. Works better if you need several things.

Phil, they both sound interesting! My email is: julwood at iprimus dot com dot au. Happy to pay postage.

Yes the chou moellier grows and grows and grows.. it's a very old cv. which is sometimes known as a walking stick cabbage but it is really a kale.

Hi Julie,
Are you still after some kale seed? I friend gave some Siberian kale seeds to me sometime ago. I can only spare some seeds to get you going. Please do not be disappointed/discourage. I grow two to three plants per season (that's enough for a family). I have tried Russian kale but Siberian kale is still the best. It taste like Lai Lan but more volume. I will contact you thru your email address to get your postal address.

Simon and Phil - thanks for the kale seeds. I now have about four varieties, and I'm wondering what you guys do to prevent cross pollination?

I'd like to save the seeds, so don't want them to cross. Thinking of bagging one head of each and cutting off the rest. Any better ideas?

g'day phil,

is the plant you have same as the tree collard purple leaf variety of kale?

i have also read as the plant cross pollinates readily seeds may not grow to form, and does this plant grow from cuttings?

at this stage phil and simon i would like to procure some seeds from you both, i live just north of gympie qld

many thanks

Ok will see if I still have some around, the leaves aren't purple and I am not familiar with the name of tree collard. I think it may be similar to a walking stick cabbage

len, I have plenty if Phil has run out - I originally got them from him.

Picture of tree collards here - the Chou mollier looks nothing like that.

https://www.daleysfruit.com.au/forum/tree-collards/

It makes great kale chips, and I get a huge amount of seed from it each year (3 years now) which I use for sprouts.

len, email me at julwood at iprimus dot com dot au. Probably not the right time of year to grow grow now, as they like the cooler weather.

Then again, they are perennial, so they keep going through summer.
