I could really do with some advice about growing brassicas, particularly sprouts. This is the third year I've tried and failed again. The plants are only growing to about 6-8 inches high and although they are producing sprouts, they are very small and then burst open before they get any bigger than a marble. I did add quite a lot of multi purpose fertiliser this year which has made no difference. I'm getting very frustrated especially when I see the wonderful sprouts in gardens I pass and allotments. My brocoli was also a complete disaster and my cabbages are very poor.
