  • For an early crop start seeds indoors in the earliest part of spring. Or direct sow seeds outdoors in late Spring after last frost. Cover seed with 1/8 inch fine soil.

  • Transplant seedlings outdoors after hardening off, when danger of serious frost has passed.  Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart in rows 2 to 3 feet apart depending upon available garden space.
  • Brussels Sprouts grow best in a sunny location with fairly rich well drained compacted soil.
  • Harvest sprouts from bottom of plant up as heads mature.
