I was badly let down by one of the big seed and plant companies. My replacement order from Victoriana was sent quickly, well wrapped and the plant was very healthy. Will definitely be a customer again.

Pollinator Friendly

In time gone by this very tall variety of cabbage, which is produced on the top of a single stem around 4 feet (1.2 metres) or so tall, was widely grown.

It was cut, trimmed of leaves, dried and then made into walking sticks after being given a coat of varnish or stain. A knob for the handle and possibly a door stop as a ferrule completes your walking stick – grow your own walking sticks!

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).

  • Biennial.
  • Likes a sunny position (will tolerate some shade).
  • Prefers well-drained fertile soil.
  • Can be grown near the sea.
  • Can reach 10 feet (3 metres) high, though 4-5 feet (1.2-1.5 metres) is more normal.
  • Both flowers and leaves are edible.
  • Sow during spring.
  • Plant out 4 feet (1.2 metres) x 2½ feet (75 cm) apart.
  • Flowers May-August.
