Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

Parsnips usually don't suffer from any serious issues with pests or disease. The three issues they may encounter are Carrot Fly, Leaf Spot and Powdery Mildew. Being related to carrots, parsnips can become targeted by carrot fly. The best protection against carrot fly is to cover the plants with a fine, horticultural fleece. Powdery Mildew and Leaf Spot are both fungal infections and can be solved by having adequate circulation between the plants–so having them correctly spaced apart and keeping the area around them free of weeds. Also ensuring that they are adequately watered but also that the leaves do not become wet by watering at the soil will help prevent infection. MORE
