The key to producing a plentiful root crop is the soil preparation. These vegetable seeds need a loose, friable soil that is heavily worked.
Root crops prefer to be planted in raised beds and planted in blocks, rather than rows. You should till the bed where you will be planting the vegetables seeds to at least an eight inch depth. As you are tilling the bed, you should work organic matter into the soil.
