Product Details

'Winterbor' sports deeply ruffled blue-green leaves, which are ready for cutting as baby greens in just 28 days, and as mature leaves in 55 days. The harvest may extend past the first snow. Kale is a delicious and nutritious addition to soups, and is fabulous steamed until just tender, then drizzled with sherry vinegar or tossed lightly with walnut oil. The long leaves of 'Winterbor' are very ornamental, too, so you can use them for garnishes or add to bouquets. For information on growing and care, click on Growing Guide.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Kale and Swiss Chard can be real eye-catchers in the vegetable or flower garden with their diverse leaf shapes and colors. Their outer leaves can be harvested for salads at 30 days, and plants are fully mature 50-60 days from transplant. Kale and Swiss Chard are good sources of Vitamins A and C.

Continuing Care

If rain is scarce, water your vegetable plants deeply and regularly (weekly, or more often in hot, dry weather). Mulch plants to keep the soil cool, weed free, and evenly moist.

Cut Kale’s young outer leaves for salads when they are 4–6″ long. When the leaves are larger, remove the center rib and cook like Spinach, or add to soups. Dry leaves can also be torn into pieces, tossed lightly with olive oil, and baked in an oven at 350°F until crispy (then sprinkle with salt to taste).

Cut Swiss Chard’s young leaves when 6–9″ long for use in salads. When the leaves are larger, use them to add color and great taste to soups and sautés. You can also steam the midribs as you would Asparagus.

When the weather cools at the end of summer, Kale's flavor becomes quite sweet and more complex. You can continue to harvest Kale and Swiss Chard leaves after the first light frosts of fall.
