Kale plants can provide us with an abundance of nutritious leafy greens. Kale contains sulforaphane, vitamin C, vitamin K, B-group vitamins, iron, calcium, magnesium, carotenoids and assists our body in many ways.

Kale plants like full sun, water and good soil. They are prone to cabbage moth and therefore need protecting with insect- excluding mesh.
