How to Successfully Grow Turnips

Turnips are quick and easy to grow and have become a common sight in many greengrocer shops and supermarkets. They can be grated and eaten raw with salads, added to soups and stews or boiled and used as a regular vegetable. The turnip tops or greens can also be eaten and are said to be more nutritious. The most commonly grown varieties are the purple top and the faster growing white. This popular root vegetable is related to the brassica family, which includes cabbages, sprouts and cauliflower.

Seed sowing

Seeds can be sown from as early as February outdoors under cloches and right up to August. Sow directly into shallow furrows in well prepared, free draining soil and cover with no more than 1cm of fine soil. Repeat sowings can be made every 2-3 weeks to ensure continuity over the whole growing season. Ensure the furrows are watered after sowing using a watering can with fine rose attachment. Germination usually takes around 4-5 days.
