Perennial kale

I'm looking for plants or cuttings of any perennial kale. If anyone has one I could swap something with or could send to North Somerset please let me know.

    I've got hold of some kale cuttings now and they are just starting to show new growth.

    Hi Charlie - I am also giving them a try and just posted this piece about perennial vegetables: Darwin and the vegetable patch. Will be interested to hear how you get on.

    Hello Charlie and Jeremy. Would either of you be interested in swapping (or selling) a couple of perennial kale cuttings? I would love to try some. I have a few oca tubers ready to sprout and/or half packets of celery 'Solid Pink' sow by Aug2018 and Celery 'Peppermint Stick' organically grown seed Sow by Aug2018. Happy to post as a swap if of any interest?

    When my cuttings are proper plants and I am able to take cuttings from them I will and will post on here! Not managed to grow celery successfully yet but am trying again. Not actually liking celery to eat (I'd use some in cooking) I think it is at the bottom of my list when looking after plants I'm growing :( Your seeds sound more interesting than the run-of-the-mill varieties offered :)

    Hello Charlie - many thanks, that would be lovely. If you aren't keen on celery to eat then not a great swap I can see. Yes they are unusual varieties. I find Cutting Celery easy to grow and have had some in the greenhouse all winter. It just grows as a cut and come again leafy crop and adds a celery taste to salads or in cooking.
