Normally Brussels would be planted by now but they've probably still got time to catch up. They're still quite small, are they in a seed tray or pots? I plant mine out when they're about 6" high. They do best in ground improved with compost or manure( normally done in the autumn) and a top dressing of lime in the spring.
The one thing Brussels need above anything else is firm ground otherwise they may not form tight sprouts. Plant them deep, up to the first leaves, and firm the ground around the base really well. Even then they may need staking as they are tall plants which catch the wind.
Finally try and net them to stop devastation by pigeons and caterpillars.
