Parsnips are not grown here :( :( :( I always bring a few back from UK and freeze them.  Someone said the purple carrots are very similar, I bought and roasted some (they lied)

Parsnips like the cold so unless you're living somewhere like Nife it's unlikely they'll do well. There was someone that grew and sold them, they lived in Nife, but I haven't seen them around for a good few years.

well only one of the parsnips germinated but will be looking to sow more in the shady /cooler part of the garden earlier this year




Swedes faired a bit better & growing in different parts of the garden to see weres best




Thanks to the in-laws for the Christmas present of a made to order mini greenhouse tomatoes, chillies, dahlias, hollyhocks,carnations & more being grown from seed.

I've never seen a parsnip here Bernie, and I love them. I also like sweet potato which you can get but they cost an arm and a leg !
