Planting Brussel Sprouts from seed - direct sow?

13 years ago

I bought some seeds and want to try again with Brussel Sprouts. Do you experienced BS growers have advice as to whether it's best to start them in small containers as seedlings and then transplant or to direct sow? I have just about 100 days until our first frost date (maybe they can withstand frost?) which is their stated DTM. Thanks in advance for advice.

The seedlings I bought and planted in early April are still growing their little sprouts, but I have been advised that they'll be bitter and bad after the heat of summer.

Any advice on fall BS growing appreciated! Thanks.
