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."
T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Gradually acclimatise brassicas to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.
Grow Brussels sprouts plants deeply in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. A site that has previously cultivated beans or peas is ideal. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant Brussels sprouts at a distance of 60cm (24") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
