Planting & Growing Instructions for Heirloom / Open Pollinated Brussels Sprouts

Heirloom Brussels Sprouts Seeds

(Brassica Oleracea)

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 wks 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.
