Parsnip F1 Warrior Vegetable Seeds
50 parsnip seeds. An excellent performer during trials, Parsnip ‘Warrior’ F1 Hybrid is a British-bred variety producing flavoursome, chunky, gradually tapering roots which measure up to 28cm (11”) in length. Strong and reliable ‘Warrior’ has also shown strong resistance to root canker. Lift the parsnips as and when needed throughout autumn and well into winter to get the best of their flavour and nutritional value.
Direct sow parsnip seeds outdoors from April to mid-June to produce quality roots with less risk of canker disease. Grow parsnips in a sunny position in stone-free, well prepared soil that has been deeply cultivated.
Sow parsnip seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm ( 1/2”) in drills 30cm (12”) apart. Germination is slow and may take up to 28 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 7cm (3”) apart or 10cm (4”) apart if larger roots are required.
