How to Guide
Sow seed fairly thickly in pre-watered, shallow rows, and cover with a little soil. Allow about 40cm (16in) between rows. Delay early sowings if soil is very wet or cold; later sowings will make up any lost time.
As seedlings develop, thin them gradually, eventually to about 15cm (6in) apart. Keep soil moist until seedlings are established.
ALWAYS BUY PARSNIP SEED FRESH EACH YEAR, AS IT DOES NOT STORE WELL ONCE THE FOIL SACHET HAS BEEN OPENED.
