Mullein seeds

Price $4.50
Availability: 19 In Stock

Mullein (verbascum thapsus) is an upright biannual herb growing a rosette in its first year and a flower spike up to 2 metres tall in the second year of its lifecycle.

In our moderate New Zealand climate they often grow a rosette in spring followed by the flower spike in late summer or even autumn. Seeds germinating in autumn may grow the flower spike in early summer after the winter period.

200 seeds per pack.

Cavolo Nero Kale Seeds

Price $4.50
Availability: 17 In Stock

Cavolo Nero Kale (Brassica oleracea var. palmifolia) seeds. Heirloom seeds organically grown at KoruKai Herb Farm.

Cavolo Nero is a variety of kale with a long tradition in Italian cuisine, especially that of Tuscany. It is also known as Tuscan kale, Italian kale, dinosaur kale, kale, flat back kale, palm tree kale, or black Tuscan palm.

This is our favourite kale and we have selected seeds from strong, healthy plants that do well in our New Zealand climate. We sow them in spring and end of summer and sometimes harvest from the same plant for over 12 months. That's generous, right?

Approximately 200 seeds per pack.
