How to Guide

Sow outdoors

March-August: Sow thinly, ½in (1cm) deep direct in the harvest location. Keep soil moist at all stages of growth as this prevents roots becoming ‘woody’. Thin to 6in (15cm) apart in rows 12in (30cm) apart.

 

Tips

Pick when small and young. Use in salads for a nutty flavour. Turnips do best in well-dug soils which have not been recently manured. Best results are achieved from plants which are grown with plenty of moisture and harvested while young.
