On Receipt - Remove the plants from the packaging immediately upon receipt. Check the compost is moist and water if necessary. All the vegetable plants can be planted immediately into a moist soil in the garden, provided conditions are suitable. Once planted water well to settle the soil around the plants. Soil Preparation - Vegetable plants require a well drained soil in a sunny position that has ideally been dug in the autumn. Prior to planting lightly fork over the area removing any weeds that have grown, and break down any large lumps. Apply a general fertiliser such as Growmore and rake into the surface. During the growing period keep the plants well watered in dry spells and keep weeds under control. BRUSSELS SPROUT - Grow Brussels in a sunny position sheltered from strong winds. In exposed gardens the plants will eventually need staking. Plant firmly 60cm (24") apart in each direction in a very firm soil to ensure tight, solid sprouts form. Harvest the sprouts from the bottom of the plant working upwards as they mature.
