Q.Can I Use A Pro Mix Soil With Vermiculite To Grow Parsnips?

Zone Pittsburgh, PA | Anonymous added on April 19, 2024 | Answered

If not, where do I find good sandy loamy soil? Do the big box stores have a specific sandy loamy soil in 50lb bags? Or could I just use any top soil and augment it with coarse sand to achieve ideal soil conditions to grow parsnips?

Parsnips need well-drained, fertile soil but you can loosen and enrich the existing soil with compost or manure. You can buy sandy loam soil at sod stores. Most big box stores are more likely to carry amendments like manure, peat moss, vermiculite, perlite, and soil such as potting soil, garden soil, and top soil.
