Swede - Gowrie
This variety is easy to grow, providing great winter crops of sweet and tasty purple skinned roots. This good quality variety is very winter hardy and has resistance to powdery mildew for healthy and reliable harvests.
Sow outdoors thinly from May to July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, rich, well-dug soil, which has already been watered. Allow 45cm between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin out to 25cm apart. Water well until plants are established. Make two or three successional sowings to provide a crop throughout the winter. Harvest from October to March.
