I am sad to give you the news that Jude Lai has passed away. We visited his place in Gilston on the Gold Coast in 2014. He was an extremely knowledgeable and generous man. Thank you for sharing…Continue

This is an ornamental cabbage and not an eating cabbage!!! So the white and purple are to look pretty in flour arrangements and are not a nutrient deficiency!!! My friend who works at a wholesale nursery gave them to me (along with a variety of others), so he probably didn't realise they were ornamentals!!!
I am so…Continue
