Planting Advice

Sow directly in cropping position, 15mm deep, in rows 40cm apart. Sow thickly as germination is irregular and water well until plants are established. Thin out gradually to 20cm apart. Parsnips do best in an open, sunny position. The root flavour will improve after exposure to cold conditions.

Watering needs

Water well until plants are established.
