Vegetable growing: Brussels sprout

Seedlings take place from mi-March to end of May, sown in nursery or indoors. When there are 4 or 5 leaves, transplant to their growing positions, leaving 60cm between plants and 75cm between rows. Before planting, water plants well and water well again after transplanting. Harvesting starts in September up to March. Brussels sprout is a stalwart among winter vegetables. Regular watering is important to allow the growth of the Brussels sprout.

As with other vegetables, Brussels sprout can be affected by diseases such as mildew (a fungus that grows because of the high humidity of the environment and will be responsible for the appearance of brown spots on the leaves). Subsequently this disease causes a slower growth of the plant, which can even lead to the death of the latter. Brussels sprout is a vegetable but also a leaf.
