Growing Salsify in Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Any tips on growing Salsify in the current Sheffield Climate please?


I have some seedlings to transplant into our new raised bed, and have never done these before.

I've grown Salsify once, and Scorzonera several times. Both are deep rooted, so you need a good depth of stone-free soil, and both will give larger roots after two years of growth. No problems growing, but I am a bit concerned you say they will be transplanted, better really to sow in situ. Put them in before the tap root reaches the bottom of the container they are in.

Have you tried this vegetable? If not, be aware it is very windy ...... if you thought (Jerusalem) artichokes were spelled with a silent "F", wait until you try these little beauties!
