Give them time --- leaves are needed first for them to then bulk up a root for you to eat  :D

apparently Chempak 8 is very good for roots, so if you can find some, it will help bulk up your root veg. But sunshineband is quite right too!
small, Welsh and almost certainly bonkers, but can be tamed with Talisker, if required
