When to Sow  Mid March to Mid May

Harvest September to February

Where to Sow
Sow thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (¾") deep in rows 45cm (18in) apart. Try to choose a stone free tilth growing site. Parsnips can take up to 8 weeks to germi-nate depending on soil temperatures. You are better to delay sowings if soils are wet and cold.                                      

What to do Next
Do not transplant seedlings. As soon as seedlings appear, they should be gradually thinned until plants are 10cm 4in) apart. Hoe regularly, taking care not to damage the crown of the root.

Handy Tip
If growing for exhibition, wanting long straight roots, bore deep holes with a long bar and fill with a sandy compost mix and sow 2-3 seeds per station, then thin to the strongest seedling.
