Sure, we've all seen bok choy and wombok at the grocery store, and some of the more adventurous among us may have even chopped up one and added it to a stir fry or two.  But the range of Asian vegetables available for growing at home is far greater than what's available in shops, particularly in the range of Asian leafy green vegetables.  Most types of Asian vegetable seeds are well suited for hot, humid climates, an added bonus for subtropical and tropical gardeners in Australia who otherwise have difficulty growing conventional vegetables which tend to be very fussy unless grown when conditions are optimal.  Our current range of heritage and heirloom Asian leafy green vegetable seeds are available to buy in convenient packets below:
