The Q&A Archives: Brussel Sprouts

Question: hello,
My plants are flimsy and tipping over, even though thier leaves are nice and growing quickly. the stem seems to be thin and cannot support the plant, is there anything i can do to fix this? Maybe staking the plant?

Answer: You could try staking them but there must be a reason they are growing so weakly. They will need full sun and a good rich soil, but you would not want to oversupply them with nitrogen. You may find that they are weakened by heat as the days get hotter -- they are really cool season growers so make a better fall crop than spring.
