Sowing Months Harvest Months

1 packet (750 turnip seeds) (TKA54111)

  • Prepare the ground by digging deeply, to encourage a welldrained bed, and rake the soil to a fine tilth before sowing.
  • Sow outdoors mid-May/mid-June, thinly, 1cm (1/2in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart.
  • When large enough to handle, thin-out seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart. Keep plants well watered and hoe regularly.
  • Roots can be harvested from September onwards. Harvest before the roots become too large, as the smaller roots hold the best flavour.
