I have just sent in the first order of seeds and I started with the base, the wonderful Brassicas. The Brassica oleraceas are the fundamental plants in my potager I think they are so beautiful. So many different shapes and colour and still the same family, Brassicaceae, amazing. Isn't it a nice family name too, perhaps I could change to Tyra Brassicaceae :-)
I manage to get in 5 cultivar groups of the seven cultivars of Brassica.
Brassica oleracea Acephala Group - kale and collard greens
Brassica oleracea Capitata Group - cabbage
Brassica oleracea Gemmifera Group - brussels sprouts
Brassica oleracea Gongylodes Group - kohlrabi
Brassica oleracea Italica Group – broccoli
I think I was able to find a lovely collection of colours and structures.
