Parsnips going to seed?

Norfolk, United Kingdom Gb

Has anyone got parsnips going to seed? I have grown them this year as I normally do and expect to get one or two go to seed but this year there are quite a few "bolting".
It has been dry here in Norfolk, do you think this is the reason?

We had a question last year on parsnips which did not make a tap root. Ours have not formed properly. Have yours been in the ground a long time i.e. did you sow your seeds early.

No I never sow them too early. Do you think it best to sow early?

In my experience I had parsnips go to seed when sown in February.
How big is your crop? it may pay you to grow a different variety next year.

Ours are fine but we didn't have a dry summer.
