Brussels Sprout Seeds

A nutritious member of the Gemmifera Group of cabbages, grown for its edible buds. These tight leaf vegetables are typically 1.5-4.0 cm (0.5 to 1.75”)
in diameter and look like miniature cabbages. Brussels Sprouts have long been popular in Brussels, Belgium, and may have gotten their name there.

How to Grow: Start seed indoors in a soil-less mix 6 weeks before your normal last frost date. Sow seed 6 mm (1/4”) deep and keep at 21°C(70°F) for the 7-10 day germination period. Grow on at slightly cooler temperatures.

Planting: Harden off and transplant outside to a sunny area in late May. Space plants 75 cm (30”) apart in the row with rows 75 cm (30”) apart to allow for weeding. Harvesting: Flavour is improved by significant fall frosts. Harvest the solid, tightly closed heads by snapping them off with a sharp, downward tug or by cutting them clean with a sharp knife.
