A slow-growing, long-bearing crop, Brussels sprouts should be planted in early spring, or mid- to late summer for a crop that matures in the fall. The small heads mature best in cool and even in light frosty weather. Spring planting is also fine in cooler climates.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last spring frost.
While starting seeds indoors is recommended, you may also direct sow seeds 4 months before the first fall frost. You may also have luck finding seedlings at a nursery.
Raised beds are especially recommended for cold season vegetables, especially when seasons are changing and temps are not consistent.
Work fertilizer into soil a few days before planting or transplanting.
Plant transplant seedlings 12-24 inches apart.
If direct sowing seeds, plant ½ inch deep and 2-3 inches apart. Thin plants to 12-24 inches apart when they reach 6 inches tall.
