<a href=""></a> 27 March 2008. Germination time for Brussel sprouts.

Germination is always of concern to anybody growing plants. These Brussel sprouts seeds sprouted in five days utilizing the method shown.

The germination rate is 75% of the 12 containers planted. usually three or four seeds are placed in one pot, and eventually only one seeding will be left per pot.

If the other three pots do not produce seedlings, a plant will be taken from one of the pots that produced more than one, since I desire 12 plants.

The thrust of my post is that this simple method is effective, and no care is required until after germination. Immediately after the seeds emerge, the plastic cover is opened, and the seedling is exposed to as much light as possible.

The plants can be left in this container until time to place in the garden, and if too large can be easily placed to a larger container.
