History
Kale used to be one of the most common leafy vegetables in Europe until the Middle Ages when the cabbage rose to popularity. In the past kale has been important in colder climates due to its frost resistance. Kailyard was a term coined for purpose-built yards for growing kale in Scotland. The term ‘kailyard’ was later used to describe a type of fiction writing that was popular in the late 19th century, usually focused around rural domestic life. Kale has become very fashionable in recent times, before which it was grown mainly for livestock.

  • Curly Kale: (All year round) The intense colouring of the leaves make curly kale a particularly stunning garnish, this is especially true in winter when other garnishes may be difficult to obtain
