I would like to grow collards or collard greens. Where can I find seed or seedlings please. Are they the same as silverbeet or does silverbeet have the same or similar levels of Vitamin A?

Hey there, you can buy the seeds online.

But whereabouts online? I have yet to find it available online in NZ and importing it from overseas is likely to run foul of our immigration laws.

Hi Paul The Koanga Institute have seeds available they call it the Dalmatian cabbage. I think i have seen it advertised in either the Egmont seeds catalogue or the Kings seeds catalogue. All three have on line catalogues. Collards are a type of Brassica. Regards Barry
