Keep picking sprouts long after Christmas Day with this fine late variety which starts cropping from January and continues well into spring. The tall sturdy plants are reliable and very hardy, producing a generous crop of large firm sprouts renowned for their particularly sweet flavour with no bitterness and a crisp crunchy texture.
- 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. Pick sprouts at the bottom of the stalk first as these ones mature first.
