How to grow deliciously sweet Turnips

You’d be wrong in thinking that Turnips were those mushy woody things that you tried to hide under your plate as a kid.  Today’s modern hybrid turnips are simply delicious and can even be sliced thinly and popped into salads.  So now is the time to plant them ready for an Autumn / Winter turnip crop.  In this edition of “GardenTags HowTo” series Ellen of Ellen Mary Gardening shows us how to weed, rake and level the soil ready for sowing the turnip seeds. She’ll also show you a smart way of sowing the seeds in line at exactly the right depth. Hey presto, in 6 -8 week’s you’ll have a really tasty turnip crop.  There’s also some advice on the dreaded clubroot.
