Asturian tree cabbage – potted plant

£6.99

plant in a 1L pot – UK SHIPPING ONLY FOR THIS ITEM

Asturian tree cabbage, a spanish heirloom brassica which grows into a beautiful loose leaf (headless) cabbage with huge emerald green leaves. Cut back flowering stems each spring and plants will continue to produce greens for several years or more. Used traditionally in the spanish stew ‘Caldo Gallego’ but greens are very versatile and can be used in place of cabbage or kale. Plants look striking in the spring and leaves can grow as large as dinner plates. Our plants have been producing for about six years, this is with a dedicated removal of the flowering stems/branches of seeds once a year. Plants start to ‘leaf up’ again from the bottom of the stem once they have been cut back. They seem to have quite good resistance to caterpillar damage as well. It is possible to take stem cuttings, by snipping off a small side stem with a growing tip and potting it up, it will root in about 6 weeks.
