For those looking for something different, this is a must! It has a sweet mild taste and a colour which deepens in cold weather. Renowned for their hardiness: it is believed that the colder the weather the better tasting the sprouts! Long cropping season.

Sow:

  • Early March to end of April in a seed tray or in smoll pots inside, or in a prepared seedbed outside, about 1 cm deep.Transplant into final position when plants have 4-6 leaves and are large enough to handle. Spacing 60 x 60cm.Water well during the summer period, protect from slugs and pigeons.
  • 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.
  • 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.

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.

 

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 October - March.

 

Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
