●● Sow­ing root veg for win­ter

It’s not even sum­mer yet but I’m al­ready think­ing of win­ter, as root veg, which can be har­vested in the cooler months, need to be sown now.

Car­rots, parsnip and swede, as well as turnips and beet­root, can now be sown di­rectly into the ground in rows around 30cm apart.

Car­rots, swede and turnip need to be sown thinly, while sow two parsnip seeds at 15cm in­ter­vals in ground that is free of stones.
