The plot’s not complete without a selection of classic winter root vegetables to be the latest addition in your winter stews. Whilst similar in appearance, these two are different and often underrated. These British favourites deserve a place on the veg patch for their versatility in cooking, and quality crops.

At Dobies we provide a range of Turnip and Swede seeds for you to choose from, because plot to plate not only tastes better, but it is a joyful and valuable experience for all. Try the Swede ‘Aramis’ which is great start for someone who would love some homegrown Swede. Or ‘Model White’ Turnips for juicy and sweet flavours. They are also most popular for general purposes!

Why Grow Your Own Turnip & Swede From Seed?

Turnips are quick germinating and a reasonably fast crop from seed to plate. The green tops can be eaten after a month, and the turnip roots after a tad longer, the turnips will be ready to harvest after a couple more months.

A great crop for making sure you are still filing your allotment or raised borders as the winter months set in.

Turnips like a cool sunny spot to grow in, if the area they are growing gets too hot they are likely to bolt.

Turnips are a fantastic end of season crop, another one that is a must on the ‘Grow a Christmas dinner’ list. As beds empty toward the end of the summer, Turnips can be repeated sown on the new available ground. Your homegrown Turnips will be so tasty that they can be peeled and eaten like an Apple.
