Parsnip seed is very slow to germinate. Start outdoors in early spring in compost-amended soil as soon as the soil can be worked. Cultivate soil deeply before planting to encourage deep root growth. Keep young plants watered and well weeded.

Parsnips are generally grown all season until winter freezes the tops. Apply deep mulch over the crowns and store roots in the ground. Dig up as needed.
