Sowing and Growing Guide

Norfolk Green Turnip

Indoor Sowing

  • Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last expected frost date.
  • Fill seed trays with seed starting mix and sow seeds 1/4 inch deep, 2-3 seeds per cell.
  • Keep the soil moist and at a consistent temperature of 60-65°F.
  • Seedlings should emerge in 7-14 days.
  • Once seedlings have developed their first true leaves, thin them to one per cell.
  • Transplant seedlings outdoors when they are 3-4 inches tall and have at least two sets of true leaves.

Outdoor Sowing

  • Sow seeds directly into the garden 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost date, or as soon as soil can be worked.
  • Choose a sunny location with loose, well-draining soil that has been amended with compost or well-rotted manure.
  • Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 1-2 inches apart in rows spaced 12-18 inches apart.
  • Keep the soil moist and weed-free.
  • Thin seedlings when they are 3-4 inches tall, leaving 3-4 inches between plants.


  • Norfolk Green Turnips prefer well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.
  • Water consistently to keep soil evenly moist but not waterlogged.
  • Fertilize once a month with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Protect young seedlings from pests, such as flea beetles, by covering with a floating row cover.
  • Harvest turnips when they reach 2-3 inches in diameter. They are sweetest when harvested young.
  • Store harvested turnips in a cool, moist place, such as a root cellar or refrigerator.
