Brussels Sprout Evesham Special | Tray of 20 Plug Plants

The result of recent breeding work to produce a better sweeter flavour, Brussels Sprout Evesham Special produces firm, medium sized buttons with a superb flavour, which hold well on the plants. Delicious with any roast! Sprouts are one of the most useful garden vegetables, providing crops over long winter periods, even in the harshest weather. Harvest from mid November to late January. All our vegetable plug plants are shipped in specially designed packaging to keep the root system in place and the foliage protected in transit.

  • Grow plug plants on in fresh compost and once they are around 12-15cms they can be hardened off ready to plant into the veg patch. Prepare the ground as in the general care instructions.
  • Plant approx. 60cms apart.
  • Protect the base of the young plants with a collar.
  • As the Brussels Sprouts grow taller, stake them with a cane to keep them upright as they can get top heavy or blow over.
  • Water and feed regularly using a high-nitrogen liquid fertiliser.
  • Pick off older yellowing leaves nearer the base to allow air to flow around the plants and put them onto the compost heap. 
  • Harvest the sprouts from late November onwards when they reach the size you like to eat them.  The leafy sprout tops can be eaten too.
