Good things take time and care

Take a seedling tray with medium sized cells & drainage holes at the

Sowing

  • Take a seedling tray with medium sized cells and drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Fill these cells/cup with moist coco-peat.
  • Place the Brussels sprouts seed ¼ to ½ inch deep seeds on the surface of the medium and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup and cover it with cocopeat.
  • Keep this seedling tray indoors.Spray 2 tablespoons of water everyday to this tray for the first week.
  • After about 21-25 days, when they 4 to 6 inches tall with 2- to 4-leaves your seedlings will be ready to be transplanted in container pots or raised beds. When transplanting, plant these seedlings 16-18 inches apart.
  • When transplanting, you will have to choose a container which is at least 12 inches deep and 12-14 inches in diameter (You can grow one plant in such a container) or in raised beds.
  • The Organic Veggie mix is the most ideal substrate for growing vegetables. Ideal planting mixture for the Brussels sprouts is 2 part garden soil & 1 part organic manure OR 1 part garden soil, 1 part coco- peat & 1 part vermicompost.
  • Keep in mind to transplant the seedling along with root ball of a medium, without disturbing the roots. Water well at time of planting/transplanting.
Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium

Caring

  • Brussels sprouts thrives in full sunlight in winters. So place your containers accordingly.
  • Do not let the medium dry out. Water your Brussels sprouts plant every alternate day in winters (Keep the mix moist but not wet). Make sure your plant gets water in the form of an even shower using a watering can and avoid overwatering your plant.
  • Before transplanting, add a quality organic manure to the soil in 2:1 ratio. You can use Cow manure or Vermicompost for raised bed.
  • Every 15 days apply a balanced liquid fertiliser or handful of Vermicompost to your plant after transplantation.
  • Keep an eye out for early signs of insects/fungal infection or any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as you notice the first signs of an infection. Watch out for snails and slugs.
  • Brussels sprouts take about three months from transplant. They grow tall first and don't start producing sprouts until they reach almost full height.
  • They begin maturing from the bottom of the plant upward. Start harvesting when the lower sprouts reach the size of large marbles. Pick the sprouts before they get too large and start cracking and turning bitter.
  • Pulling off the sprouts is easier if you remove the leaf below the sprout first, then twist and pull the sprout.
Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep

Common Problems

1. Why is my young plants starts Wilting?
Plants may wilt after planting due to lack of water. Adequate water at planting and subsequently is required. If plants are readily pulled up (i.e. not firmly anchored) and there are few roots and damaged lower stems the likely cause is cabbage root fly.

2. Why is my Brussels sprouts have few sprouts?
The number of sprouts is dependant on the number of leaves. For plenty of leaves early sowing (in winter) is essential and careful planting into very fertile soil and subsequent careful watering.

3. Loose-leaved sprouts?
Sprouts, like all brassicas, require to be firmly planted. A leaf should tear if tugged before the plant can be dislodged form the soil. However, loose planting is not a direct cause of fluffy sprouts. The usual cause is poor soil, lack of growth. Excessive nitrogen fertiliser is not implicated in loose sprout formation.

4. Plants fall over?
In exposed gardens plants can fall over (lodge) in high winds. To avoid the chore of staking plants choose shorter cultivars and draw soil 15cm up stalks using a draw hoe.
