Someone told me I can plant swedes and turnips now for a winter harvest. Are they right? I thought they had to be planted in spring.



I don't really like them to eat that much & they take up a lot of room for something that's quite cheap to buy?
Local knowledge is always good if you can get a 2nd opinion or just give it a go on a small scale & become the expert☺

Thanks Darren8. I was thinking of growing them in containers and might just plant one or two of each on a small scale as you suggest.
Take your point about them being cheap but it is the fun of growing your own. Cheers!
