Brussels Sprout Seeds
What would Christmas Turkey be like without them? The old varieties have the best flavour but the modern hybrids have the ability to hold the small tight buttons for a long time on the stem. Older varieties will quickly open and loose their button-like tightness. Havest from the bottom sprouts upwards. Sow the seeds in a nursery bed 1cm deep in rows 15cm apart in March and April, thin the seedlings to 10cm apart and transplant to the growing site in May and June 75cm apart all round. Depending on the variety grown, the harvest starts in August through to February/March.
