Oh Kale Yeah!
We all know how good kale is meant to be for your health. Packed full of the good stuff, the queen of vegetables! But a little known fact is how good the ornamental variety is, for very different sort of wellbeing – to brighten up your home and make a beautiful and inspiring space for yourself, that is!
Ornamental kale is rustic, yet whimsical, with its pastel purple centre and deep green outer leaves. It comes in a variety of colours and level of “frilliness”, similar to the edible variety sprouting up in salads everywhere. But don’t eat this week’s kale! It’s much more appetising in a vase for your dining table.
Pop this tasty mix of flowers into tall vase, featuring kale to one side with a smattering of sweet william, and ruscus on the other. Or head on over to the link to watch Natasha’s serving suggestion!
Here’s what you’ll need.
1 purple kale
5 purple sweet william
2 stems of thryptomene
clean vase and fresh water
sharp scissors or flower shears
