How to grow swede in a garden
- Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-drained soil. Enrich with Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser.
- Sow seed direct into rows. Cover lightly with Yates Seed Raising Mix and water well.
- Water regularly. Once seedlings emerge, thin seedlings to 10 cm apart. If plants are slow, give weekly side dressings of Yates Vegie and Herb Liquid Plant Food.
- Harvest roots while young and tender. Sow successive crops every 3-4 weeks to extend your harvest window.
