I grew these seeds in modules to save thinning out seedlings and made two sowings.An exceptional germination rate too, 1000 seeds were more than enough! These were then planted out in the garden,kept weeded and watered,though jJuly and August there was enough rain. I have just started to harvest and a non stringy no woody bits swede was the result and an extremely good flavour having eaten one tonight These are already on my seed list for next year.
