Brussel Sprout Seeds

Useful gardening information

Brussels sprouts, is a hardy, slow-growing, long-season vegetable belonging to the cabbage family. In the proper season of the year, it can be grown with fair success in most areas of the country. In mild areas, or where there is deep snow cover, the sprouts may overwinter.

The "sprouts" (small heads that resemble miniature cabbages) are produced in the leaf axils, starting at the base of the stem and working upward. Sprouts improve in quality and grow best during cool or even lightly frosty weather. Brussels sprouts require a long growing period, though newer hybrids have greatly reduced this requirement. In all but the most northern states, summers are usually too warm for completely satisfactory production from spring plantings. Plants set out in late spring to early summer grow satisfactorily and mature high-quality sprouts when the fall weather begins to cool.

Sowing Instructions

Plant Brussels Sprouts seed outdoors as soon as ground can be worked. For earlier crop start seed indoors 5-7 weeks before last frost and set out after last frost. Plant seed in rows 3 feet apart spacing seed 2 inches apart in row. Cover with 1/2 inch fine soil.
