Brassicas & Leafy Greens

Growing brassicas will give you healthy, delicious vegetables for every season - try Broccoli, Cauliflower, Kale, https://www.rootsplants.co.uk/products/10-organic-perpetual-spinach-plants, Cabbages and more. Not sure where to start? Read on for our guide to choosing, growing and caring for your brassicas and leafy greens.

Choose your Brassicas and Leafy Greens

Plant a variety of Brassicas and Leafy Greens to make sure of fresh harvests across the seasons, and mix up old favourites such as Savoy Cabbage and Perpetual Spinach with hard-to-find Rainbow Chard, Romanesco Cauliflower and Green Globe Artichokes. For a ready made veg patch with a bit of everything, try our Gourmet Organic Brassica Collection.

Where to grow your Brassicas and Leafy Greens

Brassicas are best grown in open ground, but it is possible to grow them in large, deep containers. Most are best grown in rows. Check the spacing needed as it can vary from 30cm for small Cabbages to 75cm for Brussels Sprouts. All brassica plants will thrive in firm, fertile and free draining soil with a position in partial shade

Brassicas and Leafy Greens Plant Care Tips

Birds love brassicas as much as we do, so cover them with a crop protection mesh or string old CDs around the area to scare them off. For more advice and tips on growing brassicas and leafy greens, caring for your plants and harvesting all year round, see our Full Care Guides.
