Fresh Brussels sprouts, properly cooked, are deliciously delicate in flavour, completely different to those bought in a shop. The 'Bedfords' are long stems of hard sweet tasty, heavy cropper, giving large dark green sprouts.

Brussels sprouts require a firm, well cultivated soil, with plenty of organic matter incorporated early in the season but not too close to the time of planting out.

Seedlings are ready to plant out when they are 10-15cm high. Water the bed rows the day before transplanting and plant seedlings with the bottom leaves just above the soil surface.

Spacing 60 x 60cm

Close planting will produce smaller sprouts which will mature together. Wider spacing will yield larger sprouts over a longer period. Spacing depends also depends on the variety.

Routine Care

To encourage smaller sprouts that will mature together, pinch out the growing tip when the lower sprouts are 1cm in diameter.

To encourage sprouts to fill out top-dress the soil in midsummer with sulphate of ammonia. Once plants are established they should not require any further watering unless there is a period of drought. To over-winter plants stake stems especially if planted on light sandy soils.

Harvest from mid September to End December.
