How to Grow
For best results raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Cover with mix, firm down and keep moist. Transplant when 7cm high.
Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Plant in a different garden bed each year to avoid soil-borne diseases. Add Yates Lime and Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser fortnightly to improve the crop. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem. Control leaf-eating grubs with a Yates caterpillar killer (Success or Dipel) or a Yates Vegetable Dust (Derris).
Great companion plant for beans, beets, cucumbers, marigolds, peas, potatoes & tomatoes. Brussels Sprouts are not suitable for growing tropical/sub-tropical regions. Remove leaves as sprouts are harvested.
