How to Grow
Sow direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down well and keep moist. Avoid overcrowding by thinning out and discarding excess seedlings when 4-5 weeks old.
Cultivate soil well before sowing as deep, well-drained soils give best results. Add Yates Blood & Bone to soil before sowing to help ensure a good crop. Begin pulling roots early to extend the harvest. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Parsnips are a great companion plant for beans, onions, leeks, spring onions, corn, cucumber, radish & tomatoes. To aid germination, maintain even moisture by laying a plank of wood over row. Remove after germination.
