    Default Parsnips - am I too late?

    Pretty much as it says in the title? Am I too late to try and pop some more n the ground? The first couple of lots have not done well due to cats digging in my bed (yes, realise now I should have netted!!) and disturbing them just wondering if I'm not too late to sling in another couple of rows? Have masses of seed left!
    If it ain't broke...fix it til it is!

    Took me 3 attempts last year and my last sowing was at the end of May when the soil was warm and germination happened.

    I'll be sowing some Parsnip sheets over the next few months. Then again, I'm in no rush for them.

    Same here.
    I find covering them in fleece helps bring them on, but also helps keep the soil moist around them which helps them germinate faster.
    No hurry for me either.

    I sowed my parsnips a couple of days ago, never grown them before so fingers crossed

    I'm going to be sowing mine next week, so it had better not be too late!
