You identify which bed(s) you're going to grow your root veg in and prepare them accordingly - without a load of manure. They don't need a lot in the way of nutrients.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Im going to have a bed for carrots and one for parsnips so you think it is best to not manure these ones at all just fill with topsoil and compost??
