CULTURE: Turnips are tolerant of moderate frost as seedlings in spring, and as mature plants in autumn. Turnips prefer a fertile, well-drained soil, with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Sow early spring through late summer in a 5-10cm wide band, seeds 2.5cm apart for small turnips or 5cm apart for larger turnips. Sow 6-12mm deep in rows 15-45cm apart.

INSECT PESTS: Floating row covers installed at the time of sowing will keep the turnips free of insect pests, including root maggots.
