 Post subject: Parsnip Seeds
PostPosted: Tue May 19, 2009 1:36 pm 
I have the remainder of last year's parsnip crop going to seed.

Would anybody like to do a seed swap or send a sae for some seeds? The variety is Hollow Crown - an heirloom variety and highly recommended. Even the kids like them.

If there's enough demand I'll leave them in.

Mrs Chant says yes please too. She's the green-fingered one. She asks how much space in the garden do they require, as our grounds are mainly given over to holidaymakers, except for our own herb/soft fruits/tomatoes/peppers/courgettes bit...

Never grown holiday makers. Are they easy to look after?

I could do with French beans, chard, purple sprouting broccoli, butternut squash, any interesting variety of chilli pepper, or something unusual.

I'll let everyone know when the parsnip seeds are ready.

I've also got a lot of runner bean seeds if anyone needs any. Will probably go to waste if not.

No. They're notoriously difficult. We have some hardy perennials, that return each year in August. They bloom for 2 weeks then wither away. We also have some deciduous varieties. They shed all their outer layers in a day, turn deep red and then need alot of TLC and soothing balms. Others are just weeds!

:lol:
