Hi, KEF...do you come here often?
Parsnips are notoriously difficult to germinate and certainly it doesn't pay to use anything other than fresh seed.
*One trick you can use is to pre-germinate the seed in wallpaper paste, then sow the seed by piping the gel along your seed drill.
* I would just say that I done this successfully years ago, but I'm not sure if there any detrimental chemicals in today's paste.....perhaps worth a trial for someone.
