Few veggies could be as rewarding and as easy to grow, so this is a great choice for veggie gardening beginners. Don’t throw away the leaves! The young ones are lovely when lightly sautéed, and they’re packed with healthful nutrients. As for the roots, your soups and stews just found the ideal traditional ingredient – eat and enjoy.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    With root veggies such as turnips, soil preparation is the key to an attractive shape. Clear away stones and compost well for good drainage. Sow your seed 5 to 10mm deep and water well. When the soil surface begins to dry, water again. After germination, reduce watering.

    How to Harvest

    Turnips grow fast! You can start picking greens at two weeks, and after a month, your turnip roots should be big enough to harvest. They will last for a couple of weeks in the fridge if not eaten immediately, and they’re good for freezing after blanching with hot water.
