Sow swedes from early to mid-autumn, directly where they are to grow. Swedes are not fussy about soils and will perform in most conditions, however high organic content may produce unusual shaped roots. They tolerate full sun or part shade. If temperatures exceed 26° C for a sustained period, then swedes may mature too quickly and cause root cracking.
