Winter Kale. What is the future for these plants? I was supplied them this autumn from gardeningdirect.co.uk. I read in BBC Gardeners World magazine that there are also frilly edged ones which are available from garden centres, which apparently tend to fair better through harsh winter weather than these non frilly edged ones. MIne seem to be looking just slightly the worse for having had snow and ice on them. Does anybody have any experience of these, and are they likely to do any more growing? Will they grow more in the winter, or will they wait until the spring and do more growing then? The slugs have so far left them alone, but then I did give them a few garlic granules.
I WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
