Vegetable Seeds - Parsnip

Parsnip seed does not store beyond a year, so discard any seeds you don’t use after opening the packet. The flavour of parsnips is improved by a couple of good frosts towards the end of the growing period.

For advice on growing parsnips see our Grow Your Own Parsnips guide.
