Many years of breeding have resulted in a top selection in Ornemental cabbage, valued for the following qualities, important to the grower desirable stem length and disease tolerance. Thanks to the appealing appearance, the excellent keeping qualities and vase life, our Brassica gained popularity and has become an important 'cut flower' in the Netherlands.

We offer an unrevealing selection in our assortment; varieties with flat, wavy, curled, or fringed leaves, crop forming or waterlily-shaped heads, with interesting colour combinations, suitable for early or late culture. The presence of several bold Brassica 'flower heads'in a mixed bouqet or flower arrangement give the entire creation a more stunning, modern effect. Retailers in the United Kingdom even offer mixed bouquets of just different types of Brassica. 

All our cultivars have been selected for both cool greenhouse and outdoor production. They have a better tolerance to fungi such as like whtie mold (Sclerotinia) and clubroot (Mycosphaerella) than other varieties in the market. The stem easily reaches a length of 80 cm. Planting is possible from late winter until late summer (NL February to late August). By using different production methods, the size of the crop as well as the supply period can be significally influenced. A general indication is given below. Denser sowing or planting requires less leaf stripping and leads to a smaller size of the crop. Lower temperatures result in more intenser colouring.
