Product Description

Often called the vegetable oyster because of its flavour. Slender, parsnip like roots, white skinned and fleshed. Ideal for lifting in the autumn for storing, or can be left in the ground and lifted as required. In the spring the tender shoots make an appetising green vegetable.

Sowing Instructions

Soil must be light, well prepared and raked to a level surface. It is important the previous crop was well manured but fresh manure or compost must not be incorporated into the soil before planting the Salsify as this will result in forking of roots. A handful of general fertiliser may be raked into the surface, when preparing the ground in early April. Sow in drills, 13mm deep, during April or early May placing 3 seeds to a station, and 15cm between stations.

Growing Instructions

After germination thin to leave 1 strong plant per station. Water well during periods of dry weather.
