More than most Brassicas, Brussels sprouts are dependent on the soil type to produce properly. In soil that is not sufficiently compacted, sprouts will be loose and leafy rather than tight and round. For illustration of this, compare photos submitted by vic (tight sprouts) to the one from bitbit (looser sprouts). However, flavor is not affected, so you can grow tasty Brussels sprouts even if your garden, like mine, is built on sandy soil.
