Swede plants like a light fertile loam but will grow in most soils and do especially well when grown in raised beds.
Plants should be spaced 30cm apart and regularly watered, especially during dry periods, to avoid the roots splitting, make sure they don't get waterlogged though.
In areas of heavy rainfall plant your seedlings in ridges to help with drainage, otherwise plant on flat ground which has been well worked and consolidated.
The swedes can be harvested when they have reached the right size, usually during late autumn and winter.
Keep an eye out for slugs!
