Ask a Question About Gilfeather Turnip (Rutabaga)
Answer this question
Can you grow this in Spring in Zone 6b/7a in Philadelphia region? Thanks.
I have always grown rutabagas in the fall, not the spring. I recommend planting from mid August to early September here in Virginia, so maybe go a week earlier where you're at. Sometimes I'll plant later (up to early October) if my goal is spring greens rather than roots. If you do plant in the spring I'd be interested in how it goes. Edmund for CWSG
