Every year I sow these in my sandy/loamy veg plot, and every year all starts well.But I end up with swedes and turnips taking an eternity to grow, and puny little balls of admittedly tasty delights are the result. Am I doing something drastically wrong, or should I just give up and go to the Greengrocer? Instructions please!
Swedes, especially, are better field-grown. And frankly they are cheap, so is it really worth growing them? Room for something valuable like French Beans.
I don't bother these days ( same reason as Welshonion) but have grown them successfully but on clay soil, maybe more water retentive.
Um, seems I too will have to give up on this one, but how about my turnips? I've been growing Golden Ball because they are so much tastier than the standard whites.
