The parsnip is one of the most popular root vegetables in the country, and is one of the key components of the traditional roast dinner. This traditional dish can be mashed, turned into soup and or finely sliced and fried into crisps.

How to grow parsnip at home

Plant your parsnip in a well-draining soil that receives full sun throughout the day. When first planted, water the plant well to help it establish a strong root system. Keep the area around the plant weed free and water to keep the soil to keep it moist.

How do you harvest parsnip?

Your parsnip is ready to harvest when the foliage starts to die down in late summer or autumn. Use a garden fork to carefully ease them out of the ground.

What are plug plants?

Plug plants are very young plants that come ready to go in the ground. They are grown in single units in modular trays and be either seedlings or cuttings. Buying plug plants lets you fill your beds and borders easily, and in a way that is stress-free for your plant since it allows for little root disturbance.

How do you plant a plug plant?

When you first get your plant home, remove any packaging except for the pot. Place the plant in a warm and sunny space for 2-4 hours to let them recover and acclimatise. You should try to plant your plug the same day if you can. To do this, dig a hole in your desired place that is slightly larger than the root ball and soil around it and put the plug inside. Cover with the existing earth and press down lightly. Water well for the first week to help the plant establish itself and feed with an all-purpose feed after 3 weeks.
