Mr Fothergills Brussels Sprout Rubine 100 Seed

£2.05

Brussels Sprout - Rubine

This variety is highly unusual, richly coloured heirloom sprouts with a great 'old time' flavour. It retains some colour when steamed and is a great fresh winter veg you won't see in the shops.

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 November to January.
