Breeze ...how do you grow them this way..?

Hi Bernieh et al.,thank you so much for your friendly comment.

Catfinch,
Flowering kales are extremely intriguing to grow.
They grow larger when each is planted with enough space between them.
While they grow small-sized when planted thickly.
Another characteristic of them is that they are easy to bend.
So you've got to prop them as necesssity occurs.

In addition to these general characteristics, we have those varieties which grow tall--they're for cutting.

I make the most of these characteristics and varieties and have succeeded in growing the taller ones thickly without props, thus resulting in creating wavy impressions.

Chemical dwarfers are not used.
