Parsnip Seed Planting Information:

Parsnips originated from Europe. They are a member of the carrot family and grow similar to carrots. Parsnips are one of the hardest to grow root vegetables, but are worth the trouble because of their flavor and storage capability. Plant seeds directly in the garden where soil is finely tilled. Planting should immediately after last frost. Parsnip can not take the mid-summer climate, so plant early spring of in the fall. Roots will grow 18" to 36". The deeper the soil is tilled, the longer the roots will develop. Plants grow 6 - 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires loose fertile sandy soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Work the soil to a depth of 1 to 1 ½ feet so the soil is loose. Use plenty of manure and compost for large roots.

Water Requirements:

Water only in times during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Dig parsnips in late September.
