I have 3 brussels sprouts plants that are all the same age. 1 is over a metre high – a goliath living happily dwelling a deep planter. The other 2 struggle in pots and measure about 20cm. I think it is glaringly obvious that brussels sprouts need deep soil.
There is no more space in the planter, so what to do?
Make or buy another planter and spend another fortune filling it?
Plant into the ground and pray that Tofu the rabbit ignores them?
If they stay in pots, they’d never get any bigger and we would never be able to get a harvest. If I plant them into the ground, and Tofu ate them, then at least someone will be able enjoy them.
So I’ve planted these into the ground. The smallest one has already been eaten. The others have been left alone so far. Perhaps the smallest one smelled the sweetest?
Fingers crossed now that these two plants will reach full size (before becoming rabbit food).
Russell the Goliath.
