    Hi all.

    In the last couple days some of my Brussel sprouts have become skeleton like and leaves droopy.

    We've had a ton of rainfall where I am in last few days and whilst some of the sprouts are performing well one or two have deteriorated overnight despite initially doing so well.

    The bottom of the stem is also rather purple. Some photos attached. Any ideas?

    Regards
    Nikos

    Have you ever had club root?

    [Thanks for the reply.

    I did wonder about that. This is my first year growing. I really made sure to compact soil before planting but the plants were dislodged slightly in high winds few weeks back so it's possible now.

    Club root is fungal and causes similar effects.
    Only way to tell is to dig one up, but if you say they got dislodged then that maybe the problem.

      I agree with pete, he has good knowledge, club root would have been my guess. As long as your watering regime is bob on
