Using raised beds is beneficial for Brussels sprouts. Move your seeds outside with 15 to 18 inches of space between plants. Plant the seedlings at ¼” depth. Water well after both planting the seeds and transplanting them.
How to Harvest Brussels Sprouts
Keep the soil evenly moist by watering at the base of the plant. Brussels sprouts require 1" of water per week or more. Mulch around plants during summer to keep the soil cool.

Harvest the sprouts from the bottom of the stalks first. *A light frost will help intensify the flavor of your Brussels sprouts.
