Not just for Christmas! If the right variety of Brussels sprout seeds is chosen then you will be supplied with fresh sprouts to pick from September to early spring.
Brussels sprouts are very hardy and will stand happily in the garden throughout winter. The seeds need to be sown into seedbed frame at the depth of 13mm during March or early April. When the plants are large enough to handle they can be transplanted. Germination takes place within 7-12 days.
Your Brussels sprout seeds need to be planted firmly into firm ground to encourage solid button formation. The plant will reach maturity within 30-36 weeks.
