My Parsnips are Forking

Wednesday, 1 January 2014

Roy asks:
I have a small veg patch in my garden. All going well except my parsnips, they are all forking. Please could you help?

  • Answers we've received:
    Parsnips will often fork when fresh manure is added to the seed bed. Also stony soil can cause this to happen.

Carol asks: Can you help me get rid of the slugs that are in my kitchen. They crawl across the floor as I can see the silvery lines.
