It is a long season crop that achieves the best flavor if matured after the first frost. Count back the days to maturity from the first frost date in your area. Plant Brussels Sprout seeds directly in the garden in a warmer climate. Start transplants inside in a cooler climate. Get them in the ground when you set out your warm season crops. Mulch to retain even soil moisture and keep weeds down. As the little sprouts mature, harvest from the bottom of the stalk, removing the leaves as you go.
