Ah here you are! Thanks for sending me the direct link RogerB. But as there are more of the old gang out on FB I guess I will choose to stay there unless the RHSs new website decides to reopen the old chat forum.

Talkback: How to grow parsnips from seed

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:29
I'm surprised you haven't mentioned two of the most important points to growing good sized, flavourful, unforked parsnips:

- a lot of organic matter dug into the soil (or pot)
- loosening up the soil by digging deep and well, and removing any stones

And another point is that it takes a while for the seeds to germinate, until this time the soil needs to be kept moist and weed free for the best results.

I learned the hard way... ;)
