.....and now it is growing leaves. I put it in a pot with soil and it's growing nicely.
When can I put it in the garden? Any tips on how to plant it would be appreciated.
Thanks for going into detail for us, Apps. What would we do without you? .applestar wrote:If they become established, they'll be 2nd year plants. As these root vegs are biennial, they will grow flowerstalks and, if you let them, go to seed. The flowers are great beneficial insect attractants, and you can collect the seeds to grow if you would like to experiment. If the original vegs were hybrid varieties, the resulting offspring will be unpredictable.
Your turniphead can be planted out when it has a fairly strong root system. the tops can grow leaves without roots, using the piece of the veg as nutrient and moisture source, so viability can be misleading. Don't plant it out too early.
