Brussels Sprout 'Trafalgar' F1 Hybrid
Thanks to continuous breeding work striving for a better, sweeter flavour, this modern hybrid has a superb flavour that sets it apart from other varieties. Brussels Sprout ‘Trafalgar’ produces a heavy crop of medium sized, firm button sprouts from mid December to late March that will retain their excellent quality over a long period of time. Height: 75cm (30”). Spread: 50cm (20”).
Andrew Tokely says: "For the past 10 years this has been the only variety of Brussels Sprout that I have grown on my plots. The strong plants produce good size buttons and will stand well though all weathers well past Christmas.Their sweet flavour means sprouts can now be enjoyed by all the family."
Companion planting: Try growing Brussels sprouts with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
