Wow Amy - that's amazing! Maybe it will grow into a giant sprout?! Please keep us informed of progress :-)

Amy, you are going backwards, sprouts will come on new plants sown in April, planted out in July, sprouts form by October.
I have seen this tried before, you can try and grow yours on, it MIGHT produce a flower from which you may get some seeds. I have to say I am very doubtful it will succeed, but good luck and let us know how it goes.

Where did you get the idea from, Amy? Fascinating experiment!

I did this years ago with my class of 8 year olds. If I remember correctly all of the sprouts eventually withered and died. In theory as said they should produce a set of yellow flowers.

Amy, you might be more lucky with a more immature sprout, this one looks to be too fully developed.
