●● 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.
