Description Sowing More Info Delivery

Thompson & Morgan is delighted to work alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to offer special seed collections to home gardeners. The Kew Collection and The Kew Urban Garden Collection have been specially selected by The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Brassica rapa var. rapa. Flatter, globe-shaped roots with purple crowns and white bases, ideal as baby turnips when the taste is sweet and succulent. Dark green, erect leaves are ideal steamed as 'greens'. Turnip Atlantic is ideal for growing in containers.

Companion planting: Try growing turnips with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
