Chitting

I arrived back from down south on Friday  night and immediately put some parsnip seeds to chit.This is the process of pre sprouting the seeds before sowing, this makes germination more reliable as parsnips are a bit hit and miss if you dont The process involves placing some damp kitchen roll in a tray then placing the seeds on top,I then cover the seeds with some more damp kitchen roll and place the tray in a heated propogaror, the trick is to then keep a sharp eye on them and as soon as they start to sprout sow them immediately, more on this next week when hopefully it happens.
