How To Grow Purple Top Milan Turnip From Seed: Early crops can be started in seedling modules or small pots. Sow a pinch of seed in each cell/pot and cover lightly with compost. When the seedlings are established and frost risk has passed, transplant them to their final place.

Alternatively, sow directly into shallow drills once frost risk has passed. Sow the seeds thinly and cover lightly with soil. When the seedlings establish, thin them to leave only the strongest one every 15cm

Turnips are fast-growing and need plenty of water to make sure they do not go woody and run to seed. They grow as a bunch and can be harvested from golf ball size. Do not let them grow too much as their texture becomes drier and more fibrous the bigger they get.

Seed count is approximate.
