Brussel Sprouts

  1. A Description of Brussel Sprouts

    History: Originally called "Borecole", Brussel sprouts were first grown around Brussels, Belgium in the 14th C. They made their way into North American gardens by the early 1800's. Cultivation: Brussel Sprouts require a long growing season. Sow seed 1/4" deep in soil-less mix, 4-6 weeks before last frost. Keep moist, under lights, until germination. Harden off and plant out in garden 18" apart. Do not use too rich a soil. Companions: onions, oregano and thyme all deter cabbage moths.
