Cultivation advice

Sowing

Sow in early spring or late autumn ab. 1cm deep! To hurry germination, put the seeds in tepid water for 24 hours before sowing. Dry them and sow! Watering the row is another method of speeding up germination.

Spacing

5-10 cm between the plants and 40-50 cm between the rows.

Harvest

Harvest late, at the same time as parsnips, and store and use in the same way. If covered with plant refuse in well-drained soil it can winter well and yields a delicious root and lots of parsley-leaves in early spring.

Seed

600-800 seeds/g and one portion sows 5-8 m, 8-10 g sow 100 m.
A portion contains about 400 seeds.
