Planting+
Brussel's sprout seed needs no prior treatment but an overnight soak in lukewarm water will encourage germination.
Sprouts are fast growers and will thrive on water retaining soil that has been well fertilised over the winter.
Care+
Water extra only in periods of drought. Brussel's sprouts love it if you fertilise them all season long. Keep the bed free of weed too and your sprouts will thrive.
Decide whether or not you want to top your Brussel's sprouts plant. If you top it, you will be harvesting all sprouts per plant in one go. If you don't, you can harvest from it in part for several weeks. A topped plant will give equal sized sprouts. Do this only from the end of August until the end of September - just as the bottommost leaves turn yellow. These will fall off on their own but you may also want to remove them yourself. The later you top the plants, the longer the sprouts will grow.
Specifics+
All cabbages are classified as Brassicaceae or Cruciferea and although there are many varieties, they are genetically very close.
Brassica oleracea covers many cabbages. They have been grown, crossed and cultivated again for 5,000 years already. Big headed cabbage are given the name Brassica oleracea convar. capitata and sprouts are specifically Brassica oleracea convar. oleracea var. gemmifera.
There are even lots of variety of Brussels sprout - both earlies and lates for sowing throughout the year and vary in their tolerance to cold. Keep to the sowing time advised to minimise the risk of problems (fast growers are usually less hardy so are best not harvested in frosty months).
Brassica oleracea convar. oleracea var. gemmifera is a bi-annual plant that will principally flower and set seed in its 2nd year. For growing actual sprouts it is therefore classed as an annual.
