I planted brussels sprout plants into the garden about May 12th. They have been growing good, I think so far. I guess they take about 90 days to mature. Info I am finding online makes me think they will not form right because of the heat in the middle of the summer. I read somewhere that some people top the plant when buds start to form. Can topping the plant force sprouts to form earlier than they normally would. I am trying to get sprouts before heat of summer shows up. I topped 1 plant and a few days later I saw little buds forming on the stem. I don't know if I caused this by topping, or if it is coinsidence. I topped the rest of the plants. I already started some sprout seeds in garden to hopefully have a fall harvest. Next year I will start them earlier in the spring.
Anyone else grow Brussels Sprouts with any luck?
