What are the pros? Easy to grow, can't kill

What are the cons? Pests

Review:

Planted these seeds October 2014, we've had TONS of greens ever since (now March 2015). These greens are now flowering and look better than ever- I don't think I'll have to replant for summer! This is a VERY hearty green that is impossible to kill with two weeks of ice storms and white moth issues. Trim 1" above ground, don't remove root and will keep producing.

What are the pros? Hugely prolific

What are the cons? Cabbage moth favorite

Review:

Widely varied results depending on soil setup, but the ones that grew REALLY grew! These collards rival my tree collards in height, and I harvest from them way more. Leaves over a 18 inches long in my good soil beds. Critters seem to like yanking up these seedlings more than other plants. Young ones also seem very prone to cabbage moth caterpillars, but once they got beyond the young stage, they were great. Plenty to share and you can never even tell the harvest made a dent.

Review:

I live in Oklahoma City and am a beginner gardener. I planted these seeds in the garden in September, they grew fast. When the winter came I was not able to protect them as I had read that I should because of shoulder surgery. I thought all was lost on the winter garden but they froze, & then grew back - over and over and over. They were still growing when I put the summer garden in. Amazing!

What are the pros? Great perfomer

What are the cons? no dislikes

Review:

I plant these collards nearly year-round here in San Diego, CA. I have found that they do not bolt in our Summers and provide tons of leaves all Winter. They seem to like the cold a bit more than the 80s temps of the Summer but overall while worth working into the garden. Older leaves can be a bit tough so be sure to harvest young and frequently.
