Get The BEST Results by sowing Brussels Sprouts Seeds In Spring.

Mid-October to early November is the best and really the only time to plant Brussels Sprouts seeds according to Lambley Nursery so here we go! LAMBLEY NURSERY. Brussels Sprouts 'Abacus' F1 (Brassica oleracea) A replacement for ‘Diablo’ and in our trials here has proven to be just as impressive. These are the best Brussels Sprouts strain I’ve ever grown and I’ve tried twenty or so. Abacus produces crops over a long period from late autumn through most of the winter if seeds are planted no later than November. Later plantings are not worthwhile.

Another Saturday and another washed out veggie patch.

 Another Saturday and another washed out veggie patch.

I’m beginning to give up hope on having a bumper winter harvest and instead find myself having whimsical daydreams about a bumper Spring veggie garden.
Just about everything I’ve planted is struggling in one way or another.
Also, because I have become so used to dry weather veggie gardening where I use a lot of liquid fertilisers, I’m at a loss about getting my plants fed.
Anyhow, how are things at your place?
