IMtrying to grow swede from seed it gets very tall with only two leaves then falls over. and is droopy then dies any tips.?


Are you sowing them in the open ground-not trays or modules or under cover?-or transplanting them?

In small flower pots. i tried one seed per pot . the same thing happens long steam  then drops and bends. then dies.started some in unheated greenhouse and some in conservatry same thing happens.


It is probably too warm-that is the problem-they don't transplant well if at all -so sowing then in a flowerpot will not work.

Sow them outside where you want them to grow -direct into the soil and thin out once they have germinated-they are a comparatively easy veg .

Thanks for your advice. i shall sow them on my alottment . instead.



That should work -let us know if you are successful.
