There are free labels thrown in too!
Fancy a packet of free seeds in these tough times? Well, those lovely people at DT Brown, who specialise in grow-your-own varieties, have come up trumps again with a new parsnip for customers to trial.
Every year, DT Brown includes a free trial seed variety, so gardeners all over the country can report back on how the veg performed under normal conditions in ordinary gardens.
This year, you’ll get a chance to try parsnip Sabre F1. It’s a high-quality British-bred variety with long and extremely white, smooth-skinned roots.
Good resistance to canker
They have a very good flavour and show good resistance to canker. The fresh white skin has an exceptional finish making Sabre well suited for the showbench.
Once you’ve harvested your parsnips, let DT Brown know about the yield, appearance, overall performance, and, importantly, flavour.
DT Brown’s general manager Tim Jeffries said: “We’ve had an overwhelming response from previous trial varieties and we really are excited about this year!
“Sabre F1 has been bred by the same breeders as our best-selling Gladiator F1 and Javelin F1 so we certainly have high hopes!”
Parsnip Sabre F1 is available online and customers will receive a free trial packet of 100 seeds plus free seed labels with all seed orders placed.
