Brussels Sprout - Trafalgar F1 Hybrid
Just imagine a Brussels Sprout which you can serve at the dinner table, and the children come back for seconds! Thanks to the work of the breeder, continuously striving for a better, sweeter flavour, your wish can now come true with Brussels Sprout Trafalgar. This modern hybrid produces a heavy crop of medium sized, firm button sprouts from mid -December to late March and they keep their excellent quality over a long period of time.
Sow seeds from end of February to April under glass for the best crops. Outdoors sow seeds in a seed bed in March/April thinly 12mm deep in rows 23cm apart. If the soil is dry, water well and allow to drain before sowing. Transplant in late spring/early summer when approx. 15cm tall, allowing 6-8cm between plants. Plant firmly, the soil should be well limed and in good heart, with plenty of well-rotted compost etc., preferably from a previous crop. When the sprouts start to form, pinch out the growing point to assist development. To avoid the danger of Clubroot grow your Brassicas (Cabbages, Sprouts, Cauliflowers etc.) in a different site each year so that they only occupy the same spot once in four years.
