Brussels Sprouts 1 November 2013 Brussels Sprouts.
Two plants of brussels sprouts (Jade Cross) were collected. Each plant produced two pounds of sprouts. There were eight plants originally but the rabbits ate them off when young. Brussels sprouts grow well in my area but few people like them and I can’t even give them away. With a bit of care they can be grown perfectly. Spraying is necessary to discourage the white butterfly, and the lower leaves should be pulled so they don’t touch the ground. They should be staked to prevent the stalk from bending.I start them as early as possible in the Spring and they grow well into frost.Frost doesn’t affect the sprouts in spite of the old wives tale to the contrary.
