Late season variety ready Mid-December to January/February. Long holding ability and performs best on fertile soils, shows good resistance to leaf diseases. Good length stalks with a good number of medium sized dark buttons.
WHERE TO SOW
Sow the seeds thinly in trays or two seeds per cell in modules under glass at 13 degrees celcius. Later sowings can be made into a seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (3/4″) deep in short rows.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves, prick off into trays 5cm (2″) apart or thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out when about 15cm (6″) tall. Plant in beds 60cm (24″) between plants and 90cm (36″) between the rows. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 7-10cm (3-4″) apart, then when large enough, lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions, spaced as above.
Always plant Brussels Sprouts on firm ground, as this will ensure plants produce tight buttons.
