My luck with Brussel Sprouts have seem to run out these last few years.
The first few times I planted them they were wonderful - very tall stalks
with lots of sprouts. The last few years have seen small stalks with few
edible sprouts? Any suggestions?
I live in Blaine, WA (perfect weather). No evidence of club root and they
seem to thrive better in different parts of the garden. PH OK, nutrients
seem to be OK - I'm stymied.
Next year I will start seedlings earlier and plant out when bigger. Any
other help much appreciated.

I'm in the foothills of Mt. Rainier WA at 1440' / 439 mts and grow
Brussels sprouts every year. I make my own seed starting mix which
includes a bit of boron, and the sprouts do well. EXCEPT when I use
elderly seed. The old seed germinates but the plants are not robust. My
go-to favorite variety has been Oliver, now unavailable. The past two
years I've grown Justus and they've done quite well. HTH
