Parsnip Joy!
« on: April 22, 2011, 21:02 »
So after three years of attempting to grow parsnips after seeing some germination for a week or so today i saw the delights of two lovely rows of parsnips growing!!!!

I sowed direct in the soil with new seed purchased just bvefore sowing.

Already i cant wait to get them in the over and drizzle some honey over

Have you had any joy this year?

Success here, sown in paper pots and transplanted after germination, before roots were out of the bottom  :)

Success here too!! (?)

4 paper-pots in a baking greenhouse and now 4 prasnips  :happy:

So why on earth did I only do the 4?  :blink:  :unsure:

I know: "An experiment to see if the little ***'s would grow that way as they'd refused to on the plot for the last two years.


Busy making paper-pots tomorow if I have the time. (Fat chance  :()

Never have any trouble with snips germinating but I grow mine in containers started off in the greenhouse.  8)

I think many problems are caused by people sowing too early into the open ground when the soil is still too cold.

I sowed mine in cardboard tubes and planted them out. Tried it this way for the first time as I always had poor germination sowing direct.

Now I`ve noticed two other plotholders who have sowed direct and they have a continuous line of touching seedlings. Around 90% will need to be thinned.
I`m left handed, what`s your excuse?

I sowed 3 rows out on the 19th of March, and they took about 4 weeks to come up, but they are up now and starting to grow well.

Success here too - sowed ours in deep rooters and all have germinated :) 

But I am starting to panic now.. I don't think we will have enough space to transplant them all in the veggie patch  :(

If you are a guest or member who for some reason has never read any thread other than this one then you will know that I NEVER chit seeds! ( :blush:)

My "fresh" parsnip seeds were sown directly into the soil just over 3 weeks ago and are coming up nicely now, although my nerves are shot to pieces as they are every year when it comes to parsnip germination!  :)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Yep I got a row of directly sown seed come up in the last week or so, they took about 4 weeks. Not so much luck with carrots here though, I have ended up having to transplant them from a trough in the greenhouse after 5 attempts of direct sowing on plot!

I've had my allotment for 3 years and i have grown my parsnips direct every time and had no problem with germination of parsnips . i sowed them about 5weeks ago and they are just showing their true leaves , in fact they are so prolific i  have to thin them so much so i get a good size snip, now my neighbour lottie holder has struggled in all the3 years i've known them . i introduce manure to the bed a year before i use it for snips for other crops  whether thats a contributing factor i don't know
