Salsify is one of the lesser known root vegetables, and is also known as the vegetable oyster.

It is not difficult to grow, being similar to parsnips, however has been pushed in to the limelight after being featured on 'River Cottage'.

 Sowing Guidelines

 When to Sow:Mar, Apr
 Temperature Required:12C +
 Cover Seed:Lightly
 Time to Germinate:10 Days
 Frost Hardy:Yes.

Seeds are sown in March or April at about 15cm apart. Thin out as soon as the seedlings are showing two or three of the grass like adult leaves. They should produce good sized roots by late September which will be is some 18-30cm long and 5cm in diameter at the top.

Soil preparation can be exactly as it would be for parsnips or carrots. Choose a site that is well tilled and stone free as the roots can have a tendency to fork.
