Vegetables

Brussel Sprouts 'Tighthead'

Mid-season, highly productive, producing firm green heads that retain colour and flavour for a long time after reaching maturity.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

For best results raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Cover with mix, firm down and keep moist. Transplant when 7cm high.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Prior to planting work in generous quantities of Lime and Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser fortnightly to improve the crop. Successive sowings will greatly extend the picking season.
