I've never grown brussel sprouts before and since planting them i've noticed that they are beginning to get holes in their leaves. just wondering if anyone knows anything about brussel sprouts and how to care for them. i am having a heck of a time trying to find information on them. I NEED HELP PLEASE!!!!

Check for tiny green worms. These would be cabbageworms. Cabbageworms attack all cole crops.

I concur with jerger. You'll need to dust the leaves with something appropriate or they will eat up your crop.
