|Flower Sprout Petit Posy
Petit Posy flower sprouts a cross between Kale and Brussel Sprout, brand new F1 vegetable developed by a UK breeder using traditional hybridization techniques. The plant habit is similar to Brussels Sprouts, a tall stem with loose button rosettes forming all the way up to a frilly-leaved top. Extremely winter hardy and with a similar cropping calendar to sprouts the harvest window stretches from October to early March from mid-March sowings, harvest by picking the loose frilly button rosettes from the stem. The taste is milder and sweeter than a Brussels Sprout with a good texture. It is an ideal winter vegetable and can be steamed, stir-fried or microwaved. Sow from early spring to June.

information should be used as a guide only, I have found a number of different
sowing techniques for the same seed from different sources there does not seem
to be a standard. With this in mind you should use this website as a guide only,
you probably already have a tried and tested way of sowing different seeds. As a
rule of thumb the larger the seed size the more cover it requires, and fine seed
like Lobelia Begonia etc requires no cover.
