Seeds should be planted ~18 to 24 inches apart. They require a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight daily with 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water weekly. The soil pH should be ~6.8. Brussels sprouts are ready to harvest when the tiny heads are firm, green, and 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Remove sprouts by twisting them until they break away from the plant. As you remove the lower sprouts, you can also remove yellowing leaves; the plant continues to grow upward, producing more leaves and sprouts.
