Brassicas require a fertile well drained soil that has been well dug in autumn they do not grow well in acidic soil so adding lime to the soil may be necessary.
 
Brussels sprouts require a sunny spot that is sheltered from strong winds and need to be planted firmly to stop the plants becoming loose in the ground ideally up to the first set of leaves.
 
Sow indoors from February onwards when the plants have around 5 leaves harden them off and transplant outside to their final growing position spacing the plants around  60cm apart and 60cm between rows treading the plants in well. Water well before transplanting and during dry spells. 
 
Alternatively sow outdoors March - May in a seedbed sowing thinly in drills 1.25cm deep thin the seedlings eventually spacing the plants 60cm apart and 60cm between rows in their final planting position treading the plants in well.
Water 💦 well before transplanting and during dry spells.
