    Default Sowing Parsnips

    I have found a great way of sowing parsnips.
    Place some kitchen towel in strips on a tray and then wet it then put yuor seed on top then place in the airing cupboard until they germinate.
    Then make a drill and place the strips of seed into it and cover!
    I have now got a lovely row of young parsnips!
    The greatness comes not when things go always good for you,but the greatness comes when you are really tested,when you take,some knocks,some disappointments;because only if youv'e been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.

    tried that already, waited 3 weeks .... nothing ..... i've now just chucked all the seed in a 1sqm patch and left em to it ..... dunno if they will work but i got fed up of them lol ...... mind you, the mini parsnips i bought are romping away ...... very strange, looks like i'll be on mini parsnips only this year ...... unless by some miracle the others germinate, which so far none of them have
