Cabbage ~ Wheeler's Imperial (September)

This is a heritage variety that my father remembers growing in the 1930's though it dates from at least 1844. A famous strain of this variety was sold by George Wheeler of Warminster, Wiltshire, a few miles from Dad's home in Devizes. Dad and I spotted the advertisement in Devizes Museum.

Wheelers gained an international reputation for this cabbage variety. The packets had a red wax seal, to prove that they were the genuine Wheeler's strain.

It is a classic pointed Spring cabbage, quite compact, so you can plant them a foot apart, harvest every other one for Spring greens, leaving the rest to form heads.

Calabrese ~ Sibsey (September)

Broccoli 'Sibsey' is a fabulous sweet stem broccoli, similar in appearance to Cima di rapa (Wild Broccoli). High in nutritional value, this tasty Calabrese fetches a high price in the supermarkets. The tender stems are so sweet that you can even eat them raw! Grow this variety in full sun where the sunlight gives flavour to the developing shoots which emerge above the foliage.
