  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: rich, firm soil with added lime if necessary

    A real old favourite for its generous crops which are ready particularly early in the season, giving you harvests from September till Christmas. The plants are medium height, making them a good choice for exposed sites and smaller gardens, and grow vigorously to produce densely-packed stems of fat, firm and delicious sprouts.

  • Growing Instructions: Sow seeds sparingly under cover into pots or seed trays of well-drained seed compost in spring. Pot on seedlings individually as they grow and gradually accustom to cooler temperatures before planting outside in May, spacing plants 60cm apart and firming in well. Keep well-watered, protect from slugs and net against pigeons. Growing plants under horticultural mesh or fleece prevents butterflies laying their eggs and so avoids caterpillar damage.

  • Sow: March-April

  • Harvest: September-December

  • Approximate quantity: 500 seeds.
