Turnips are brassicas and like all plants from the brassica family they need a sunny spot and well drained fertile soil that has been well dug in autumn that is not acidic so liming may be necessary.
Sow seed 1.25cm deep leaving 15cm between rows under cloches in February then in open ground from March until July thin the seedlings to 3cm then again to 10cm.
