Brussels Sprouts Seed Planting Information:

Brussels sprouts are sensitive to temperature, and will produce best when daytime temperatures average about 65 F or less. Consequently, Brussels Sprouts grow best when planted in mid to late summer for late fall or early winter harvesting. Brussels Sprouts are usually planted indoors and transplanted outdoors. Start seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before setting outdoors. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, and fall planting done around June or July. Plants can grow 2 to 4 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil with compost and some lime. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep watered during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Cut cabbage type heads when they are ¾ to 1 ½" in diameter. Pick them before they get any larger. They are not as flavorful when they big.
