yes and it didnt work for me. it was too warm and they bolted rather than making sprouts. have had better success with cabbage though.

Sprouts are very hardy and good in cold weather - plus, a bit of frost on the sprouts before harvesting causes the starch to turn into sugar, so they are much better (and tastier) outdoors!!
