How to grow parsnip:

Buy Organic Parsnip Seeds from The Green Chronicle (Pay in $US, £, Euro).

Sow in a deeply dug bed in early March in drills of 1 inch deep and 15 inches apart.

Sow three seeds at 1 foot intervals along the drills.

As the seedlings grow thin out the two weaker ones of the three and keep the surrounding soil well hoed.

Never use stable manure for parsnip as this can lead to the roots becoming forked.

Lift them as required in the Autumn, if possible, leaving those parsnips needed for later use in the soil.

It takes about 26 weeks for a parsnip to reach maturity.
