Excellent for exhibition and for culinary purposes. Long, smooth-skinned roots with considerable resistance to canker. An essential part of your Sunday roast! Specially recommended. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.

Heritage Seed Variety, 1929 packet details - An admirable Parsnip which increases in popularity every year. Not quite so large as our Student, but more perfect in form, of the finest quality, with a clear and smooth skin. We consider this to be the best Parsnip in existence.

Growing Information

Sow late February-May outdoors in well-cultivated ground manured for a previous crop. Lift for use as required. (32-36 weeks maturity.)

Sowing Information

Sow thinly into finely raked, warm, moist soil at a depth of 13mm ( 1?2") in rows 30cm (12") apart. Thin seedlings to 15cm (6") between plants. For exhibition purposes sow 3 or 4 seeds in prepared holes previously filled with finely sieved compost. Thin to strongest seedling. Grows best in well cultivated soil which has not recently been manured, otherwise forked roots may occur. Lift roots as required. Frosts sweeten the flavour.

Live Plants

Suttons strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries

Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.

Very Large items

If ordering any large items marked large lorry items  a surcharge of £5 per item will be applied. These items are also not available to areas and postcodes shown under non standard deliveries. We may need to contact you regarding delivery so please provide a contact number with all orders.

Prices include VAT where applicable.

We reserve the right to contact you and advise an additional charge where necessary and are happy to quote for carriage of specific products to more remote areas. Some items may not be available to all areas.

We reserve the right to revise any carriage charges in the event of carrier price increase or other unforeseen circumstances. We will always advise of the carriage charge before payment is taken.

All Suttons products should reach you in perfect condition, just as they left us. If you are dissatisfied in any way with their condition on arrival, please let us know within 14 days.
