Latin NameBrassica rapa subsp. rapa

Sowing Instructions –Turnips grow best on rich well manured soil but will grow on ordinary fertile soil to which has been added plenty of well rotted compost. Sow seeds in succession from spring to mid summer, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart.
Thin out the seedlings to 10-15cm apart.

Hints and Tips –Turnips should be grown quickly and kept well watered. Harvest them before they get too large for the best flavour. For greens follow above instructions but don’t thin out. The season can be extended by sowing under cloches in early spring and again in late summer.
