Parsnip Gladiator F1 (RHS Award of Garden Merit)

Description

EXHIBITION.
Slightly larger than standard type parsnips, Gladiator F1 has a more refined shape of hybrid quality. The root has smooth white skin and is canker resistant.

Parsnip is a particularly British vegetable because of its winter hardiness. Thankfully it is now reviving as a popular choice thanks to more imaginative uses in cooking. Roast with your Sunday joint or par-boil, roll in flour and Parmesan cheese and roast, delicious!

When to Sow Gladiator Parsnip Seeds

Mid March to May

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 germinate 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.

Harvest

Mid March to May & December

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.
