 Cultivation advice Swede – Gowrie

  • Sow Apr – Jun thinly 1cm deep with 45 cm between rows
  • Best results generally from a May sowing. Swedes do best in well dug soils which have not been recently manured
  • As seedlings develop, gradually thin them until about 20cm apart. Do not transplant.
  • Keep soil moist until seedlings are established.
  • Very hardy and will withstand frost. Lift as required or all together for storage in dry sand until needed.
