Brussels Sprout - Evesham Special

Evesham special produces heavy, early crops of large, old-fashioned sprouts. The medium-sized plants are ideal for exposed sites.

Sow outdoors thinly, from March to 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 apart, both ways, when plants are about 10cm tall. Plant firmly and water well. Or sow indoors, from February to April, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions avoiding frosts before planting out, from April to June, into well-cultivated, well-drained, fertile soil. Harvest from September to December.
