    If anyone else has any spare room to grow them I'd fully recommend buying parsnip seed from British Red.
    They are the nicest parsnips I think I have ever grown....I picked this Christmas morning..enough for 4 of us!

    I seem to always put a fork into the parsnip when digging them up, this one I managed not to!
    I've just sectioned off four plants BR to try to remind me not to dig them up (seeds)

    Let us know how you get on with seed saving. You will need to stake them!

    I've received a few PMs enquiring about seed availability following Daves kind write up. I was focusing on family over Yule and New Year, but normal life has now resumed, so, if you would like some fresh seed for Spring planting, the thread on our parsnip seed can be found here
