Brussels Sprout - Bedford
Often producing the largest, most solid sprouts and the heaviest yields, Brussels Sprout Bedford Fillbasket provides a continuous crop from early autumn to Christmas.
Sow seeds very thinly during early spring in a well prepared seed bed in drills 1cm deep spaced 30cm apart. When the seedlings are about 15cm high transplant firmly to their final quarters 5 x 5cm apart. When the sprouts start to form pinch out the growing point at the top of the plant to assist development. Brussels sprouts should not be grown on the same piece of ground for 2 years running or follow other Brassicas (Cabbages, Cauliflowers etc.).
