I now grow my seedlings in 3-4 inch pots.Take a stryropor brocolli box,cut off to make it about 4-5 inchs high. place in pots, sieve in and around to fill all spaces. mix ; mush compost, my own compost and garden soil in equal proportions. always keep moist and best covered until germination. plant out when roots poke through base of pot.result, good even rows, no gaps. when planting , add your choice of fertiliser in base of hole, cover a little and back fill with your best growing soil.It is worth the trouble Thanks Muddy knees - who also has his own method of transplanting.Have not tried it with parsnip , but I know it will work!
