Parsnip   Asparagus Pea   Butterfly Pea   Pea   Pigeon Pea  
Parsnip
Pastinaca sativa
Parsnips have been cultivated in Europe for over 500 years. It is a nutritious root vegetable with a sweet nut-like flavour. Use parsnips like carrots, in soups and stews, or steamed or baked. The roots become sweeter after exposure to frost. Parsnips will yield heavily in well prepared soil. In cool areas sow in spring and early summer for an autumn, early winter harvest. In warm areas sow early autumn. Germination can be slow in very cold soils, preferred germination temperature is 10 - 20C. Seed has only a short viability so should not be stored for long.
Parsnip 'Hollow Crown' UT
'Hollow Crown' has a long tapered root to 30 cm, with a shoulder 5 - 8 cm wide. It is a nutritious root vegetable with a sweet nut-like flavour. Use in soups and stews, steamed or baked. The roots become sweeter after exposure to frost. Days to harvest: 105.

Butterfly Pea H UT
Clitoria ternatea

A perennial climbing vine native to tropical Asia, with striking vivid blue flowers that besides being ornamental, are used to make a natural food colouring. It is in use throughout Asia to colour drinks, desserts and cakes. It can also be used as a natural dye for clothes. As a legume it is also grown for soil improvement. The pods are 5 cm long, flat pods are edible when tender. It is hardy and good at coping with wet, humid conditions. It climbs vigorously to and requires a trellis. Wait for warm, humid weather before sowing; it needs a soil temperature of at least 25C to germinate well. It tolerates a wide soil range but prefers fertile, well-drained soil.

Pea
No TAS
Pisum sativum
Sow peas spring in cold areas, late summer to autumn in warm areas. Peas do best between 13-18C, a frost will damage the flowers. To reduce fungal problems, try to avoid planting before periods of high humidity and avoid getting water on the leaves. Grow in full sun in a sheltered position. Direct sow 3-5 cm deep, space 7.5 cm apart. Lightly mulch seed rows to prevent crusting. Water well once after sowing and then do not water again until seedlings appear. Peas dislike acidity, so lime if necessary. Prepare soil with compost before sowing; practice crop rotation to avoid disease build-up.
