Growing Instructions (USDA Zones 3-9):
Since frost brings out the best flavor in brussel sprouts, plant them late in May through early July for fall crops. Sow seeds 1/2" deep in soil. When they grow to 6" tall, transplant (if started indoors) or thin (direct sown seeds) to 2 feet apart. Compress the soil around the seeds and keep moist. Once growing, mulch to preserve the moisture in the soil, remove weeds and stake for support if heavy winds are a threat. As leaves on the stem turn yellow, remove them so that sprouts can freely develop. About 4 months after transplanting, the first sprouts should be ready.
