WHEN TO SOW

May to June

Where to Sow

Sow direct outdoors into shallow drills 2cm (3/4in) deep and 45cm (18in) between the rows.

What to do next

Gradually thin the seedlings as they grow to a final spacing of 10-15cm (4-6in) apart. Water regularly to avoid woody roots. A very hardy vegetable so can be harvested as required.

MATURITY

October onwards

HANDY TIP

Some gardeners have difficulty producing good size swedes from direct sown seed. We have found that sowing seeds in modules and transplanting out once large enough is a reliable way of producing this crop.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

A very good source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins B and C.
