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.
