Sow seed 1cm deep in a seed, June to Sept (cold – temp), not suited to tropics. Transplant approx. 6 weeks later with plants 75cm apart, 1.2 metres between rows. While Brussels Sprouts are tolerant of a range of soils, they do need a solid soil to support the root system which needs to be strong to hold up these top heavy plants. They do well in full sun but prefer a semi shaded position. They also benefit from well aged manures being dug in prior to planting. Do not overfeed with nitrogen and keep well watered. Expect germination within 7 – 12 days.
