Brussel Sprout Transplanting

Jan Giordano asked 12 years ago

I bought 4″ tall local Brussel sprout plants but am unsure when to put in ground since it has been so chilly here in Zone 8 East, NC. When would be best and what do I do with them in the meantime?

Brussel sprouts are hardy and will not be damaged unless the plants have not been hardened off progressively if they came from a greenhouse, which is likely.

Stand them outdoors by day if not too cold and take in a night for a week or more to harden them off. Then plant out if the weather is reasonable or hold for another few days.
