Brussels Sprout Seeds
Growing instructions for Camelot brussels sprout seeds: Sow: thinly, March to April, 1.5cm (??) deep, in a seed bed. Keep soil moist. There are more varieties of Brussels Sprouts than we have room to show, so we have included a couple of popular types for this page.
Transplant May to June, spacing 60cm (2?) apart. Plant firmly to produce best quality buttons and water well until established. Harvest: December-February. Start at the bottom, picking a few sprouts from each plant. Around 40 seeds per packet.
Growing instructions for Evesham Special: Outdoors: sow thinly, March-April, in a seed bed, 1.5cm (?") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 60cm (2') apart, both ways, when plants are about 10cm (4") tall. Plant firmly and water well. Or sow indoors, February-March, 0.5cm (?") deep, in a tray of compost.
Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2") apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, April-May, into well-cultivated, well-drained, fertile soil. Harvest: September-December. Around 500 seeds per packet.
