I have a mild vendetta against annuals. Although I understand their use in adding a splash of color, it annoys me that I have to spend money on a plant that I reallly love knowing it will last only one season.
This leads me to the question of Kale, specifically ornamental Kale.
I (think) I understand that Kale is an annualómaybe a biannual? I'm also under the impression that 1) they go to seed 2) it's easy to sow Kale seeds at any time of the year.
My question is: Can I/How can I buy one Kale plant and "reuse it" every year by sowing its own seeds? This will be for 1 or 2 Kale plants in a planterónot a whole garden full of Ďem. I found a variety (Midnight Autumn, or something like that) that I simply canít do without.
As a newbie gardener I'm unsure how to ask this question using the right terminology--does my question make sense?
