How can I get better germination from my parsnips? I soak the drill well before sowing. I wait until the soil has warmed (I use the back of my hand.). I tried three sowings this year and got about 10 to germinate.

I would recommend giving them a little more time. They can take a long time to germinate. Also, make sure you are using fresh seeds. They lose their viability quickly, so make sure you are using seeds that were harvested for this year.
