Brussels Sprouts Long Island Improved
Vertical plants perfect for inter-planting. The formation of sprouts is stimulated by pulling off some of the leaves below each sprout so that the growth is directed to the buds. Complementary to the small garden, an extended season can be prolonged by harvesting the largest buds first. A second crop will result if sprouts are cut neatly from the stem leaving as much of the spur as possible. In fact, a few good plants will yield an abundant crop. Avoid fertilizing with nitrogen.
Matures 120 days from transplant.
