Product Information

Regularly voted top of the list in supermarket tasting panels, ‘Brodie F1’ is one of the best varieties of Brussels sprouts you can grow. Exceptionally mild, and sweeter than most other varieties, there isn’t a hint of bitterness or peppery flavour. It’s easy to see why it has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Easy to grow and reliable, this long-harvesting type has good resistance to mildew so you can be sure they will stay fresh on the plant for months. The buttons can be picked long into January or even February in optimal weather conditions.

Growing your own veg is the most satisfying way of bringing top-quality, super healthy food to your plate – at a fraction of the cost of supermarket produce. Brussels sprouts are highly nutritious, too, being an excellent source of vitamins A, B and C – and with freshness you can’t beat when picked straight from your garden.

‘Brodie F1’ will thrive in a sunny or semi-shaded position in well-cultivated, fertile, moist but well-draining soil. Sow indoors in a tray of compost from February to April for planting out in May; or outdoors from March to April, directly into a seed bed, border or raised bed. Harvest from November to January. Successive sowings will extend the cropping period.

Supplied as a packet of 40 (approx.) seeds ready to sow indoors in a seed tray or outdoors directly into their cropping position. Grows to 70cm height x 45cm spread.

Top Tips

  • For best results, prepare planting position by digging in some manure in the autumn before sowing.
  • Pick sprouts from the bottom of the plants and work upwards.
  • The loose ‘cabbage’ top can also be eaten.

Care Information

How to grow Brussels sprouts

  • Sow outdoors, March to April, thinly in a seed bed, 1.5cm (½in) deep, directly into finely prepared fertile soil that has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 60cm (24in) apart both ways when seedlings are about 10cm (48in) tall. Plant firmly and water well. If planted in exposed areas, support with canes and string to protect from strong winds.
  • Or sow indoors, February to April, 0.5cm (¼in) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2in) apart to other trays when large enough to handle.
  • Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out.

Harvest: Pick from November to January or even February. Try cutting whole stalks and keep the sprouts attached – they will keep much better for longer.
