When I was farming I used to grow 20 acres of swedes as big as footballs. Since retiring I have tried 3 years without success.Why?



Must be very frustrating.

i have been having no success with swedes at all, but the Om has been growing huge specimins. We have put it down to the manure he has topped the tyres up with every spring. I have never manured my swede beds as they are part and parcel of my brassicas and not a bed i would manure before planting up. but I s'pose the proof is in the result.
