Was never a fan of the ornamental cabbages...but I think they can look quite lovely in a mix....💜🥬💜👌🏼

Very pretty. I never got round to getting any. Seeing all the lovely ones on here has me kicking myself Rachel. 😠😠😠

They've been brilliant Jane 👍🏼 I haven't had them for a few years but was determined this year to get some. I'll have to search to see if I can get seed from them as I'd like to grow some for next winter. They're just so easy to keep! 🌸💕 @prolly

I once planted a lot in my front garden and they looked so good, the next day I looked out my window to admire them and they'd gone 😬 the blasted slugs and snails had munched on them throughout the night, I've never bothered with them again since @pelly @rachelbrooks

Oh no Della! How gutting!! 😡😟 I have mine in pots and planters so maybe that's why they've survived! @harebell

Same here @harebell but it was a long time ago when I used to plant stuff and leave it to its own devices. Might try them next year in the planters I got that are like yours Rachel 👍

They'll be back susie @susieg , I'm thinking I might try them this time again in some pots or even better hanging baskets they'll not get on them I don't think 😆 like you I didn't really bother I was a novice and just put them straight in the ground @susanhumphrey333

Yes just wishful thinking on my part Della. 😬 🐌 perhaps I'll put everything in hanging baskets this year @harebell @susanhumphrey333
