Heirloom / Open Pollinated Brussels sprouts prefer cooler
climates, but can be grown in hot climates by direct seeding in
mid-summer for a late fall/winter harvest.
Start Brussels sprouts indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost, or direct
sow mid-May to mid-June. Set out or plant in full sun to partial shade.
Plant Heirloom Brussels sprouts seeds ¼ - ½" deep, 4-6" apart, in rows
18-36" apart. Germination occurs in 5-17 days in soil 55-70°F .
Thin plants to 12-24" apart. For best flavor and tenderness, harvest after plants have endured a couple of frosts.
