brussels sprout 'Revenge' F1
- Position: full sun
- Soil:rich, firm soil with added lime if necessary
A long-standing favourite and the best variety to choose for home-grown Brussels sprouts on Christmas Day, as the tightly-packed, flavour-filled buttons are ready to pick from December to February. The medium-tall plants are extremely reliable with good disease resistance, producing heavy crops which are well-spaced on the stem. Sowing a mix of early, mid-season and late varieties of sprouts extends the harvest from early autumn through till spring.
- Growing Instructions:Sow seeds sparingly under cover into pots or seed trays of well-drained seed compost in spring. Pot on seedlings individually as they grow and gradually accustom to cooler temperatures before planting outside in May, spacing plants 60cm apart and firming in well. Keep well-watered, protect from slugs and net against pigeons. Sowing early, mid-season and late varieties of sprouts extends the harvest from early autumn through till spring.
- Sow: March-April
- Harvest: December-January
- Approximate quantity: 65 seeds.
