Growing Turnips

Turnips: you can grow quick-growing tender, sweet turnips for summer salads or stews from sowings under cloches made in late winter and early spring onwards. Grow them as for the unprotected crop, in single rows under small cloches, or two rows 30 cm (12”) apart under large cloches and thin the plants to stand at 10-15 cm (4-6”) apart. Remove the cloches when the foliage touches the roofs. You can also grow turnips as an intercrop, for example, between rows of beetroot. A late summer sowing will mature, if cloched in early autumn, by mid- to late autumn.
