Has anyone had a go at broccolini or know where seeds can be purchased?

I too have been looking for this, although it's too late for me to start from seed.

"Broccolini was developed by Sakata Seed Company, the seed is produced under contract by a Thailand Company and in the U.S. it can only be grown by a California Packing Company that has an exclusive contract. Broccolini is a hybrid between a cultivar of Gai Lon (or Kailan), a white flowered brassica sometimes known as Chinese Kale (Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra) and a selection of
standard broccoli."

However, I found this in one of my favorite seed catalogs:


Good luck!

We had some of this at a restaurant last week and we loved it, so when I saw your question, I thought maybe I should look into growing it, too. From what I've read, you can't get it under the "broccolini" name, but you can find it as "baby broccoli." It's a cross between Kale and Broccoli. I would love to grow it, but I think it will have to wait until next year because it needs to be started indoors and I'm not tackling that until next year. One thing at a time. I did find a mail order source for the seeds:

Hope this helps.
