How to Grow Turnip at Home

  • Make sure the soil is loose for their deep roots. The seeds pop out of the ground very quickly.
  • They really enjoy lots of rich compost in the soil to thrive.
  • You can plant the seeds in rows, about one centimetre under the soil.
  • When the seed germinates, you may thin the plants out.
  • After the first month, you can thin them again, until the plants are about ten to fifteen centimetres apart.
  • You can harvest the young bulbs in the second month.
  • When they mature after 3 months, they are ready to harvest.
