Generally for anything seed-related, www.seedaholics.com is your best bet. Though be warned, once you go on you may spend a lot more time and money than you expected because it is really an excellent service they provide with a load of information....can you tell i was impressed by them?!!

Thats definitely a different type of cabbage. Does it just taste like normal cabbage? How long does it take to grow?

Check out this website. They sell sticks made from the cabbage but also seeds.

HI
I got the last packet a few weeks ago in the garden shop on Henry street, dublin. They are from Thomphson and Morgan. Get back to me if you cant find them and I will post you a few seeds. YOu only need a few plants, I am growing just 5 at the moment, that is if the slugs leave them alone.
They are actually called walking stick Kale.
