Hi Berghill, thankyou for your help, maybe i have a random Yorkshire virus in the soil then? The plot was part of a larger plot that hasn't been cared for as the man that recently gave it up is 85, i took it on & have tried to dig out all the stones, connie

Hi All, back again to ask for advice please? My Parsnips have been hit by something that has caused them to come out the ground half the width & knarled ? I asked another allotmenteer (who has won many cups in his time) what it could be? He thought possibly clubroot but, he said it didn't quite look like it, pkease see attached pic, as i am unsure about using the ground next Spring or to leave it empty to treat whatever it is?
