This is the perfect perennial kale & collard mix for those looking for something unexpected! A Perennial Permaculture Exclusive. Each year we grow out hundreds of perennial kales and collards from seeds we collect from around the world in addition to our homestead favorites. Throughout the growing season, we select for delicious taste, pest resistance, drought tolerance, ease of growth, and beauty. We let only the most amazing plants go to seed and collect these seeds for the next year's trials. In this mix you'll receive the very same seed mix that we will be planting in our garden next season. We call it a buffet because it's a sampling of the best we've got. Get 'em now while we still have them. Limited supply!

1. I see it's a packet of 15 seeds. Are they from 15 different plants or is it 15 seeds counted out from all your different plants mixed together? Wondering if I would get a guaranteed mix from all your plants or possibly get 15 seeds from just one plant.
2. Do you have a coupon code for permiepeople?
Hi Jenny. We only let our most promising perennial kales and collards go to seed, and then we let them cross freely. So each seed is genetically unique. We're in generation 7, so the mix is reliably perennial and most are very tasty. This mix is combined from all of our plant varieties, but even from the seeds that drop from a single mother plant, we find variety in the babies that pop up underneath the mama. We'll be offering cuttings from our new named varieties when the weather cools a bit. That way you can know exactly what will grow for you. But growing from seeds is super exciting!
Hi Trace. This perennial mix should be able to handle to about 20 degrees. We do have a special variety that we're testing out that historically has handled temps down to 0 degrees in Michigan. We're going to grow it out for one more season to make sure it meets all of our criteria for taste, pest resistance, drought tolerance, and ease of growth and then if it passes, we'll offer cuttings of it.
We’re so glad so many of you will be growing these amazing perennial kales and collards. I’ll share some more photos of this season’s batch and share the interesting varieties. Please feel free to do the same! 👍
