Just to let you know my order of 5 plants arrived safely. I am really pleased with them as I have always wanted the more unusual plants instead of trying to grow from seeds but unfortunately I have not been able to source them within my local area. The service you provided was excellent, the packaging was sturdy, the delivery charge was very fair and they were delivered very quickly. I also appreciated that the plants had been watered well in preparation for their journey. Thank-you so much. Kind regards

Red Cabbages are something just a little bit different and special that is very popular in the Shirley household!
Whilst they can be cooked and eaten like any conventional cabbage they really come into their own as a vegetable when 'pickled with sugar and vinegar; this is a Shirley family favourite and Nanna Shirley's recipe can be found in our recipe section.
We have carefully blended a selection of Red Cabbage varieties which will provide a successive harvest and get over the all 'coming at once' problem inherent with growing just one variety.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects if allowed to 'go over' and flower (so if you have room leave any plants in that have gone too far rather than pulling them out straight away).
