Sprouts do not take up a large amount of space on a vegetable patch as the plants grow vertically, with the sprouts developing as buttons off the central stem. In exposed sites, it is worth staking the plants to prevent the wind blowing them over.
The leaves are tasty to birds, and butterflies can lay their eggs on the leaves leading to caterpillars munching through them. Covering the plants with a butterfly net will help to ensure a good harvest.
