Hello I would like to find out how many seeds would you use 1 or a few in each hole?

I suggest single seed or thin out as turnips growing close in my experience get stunted, but if you want to harvest some young and leave a couple to get bigger side by side, that works fine also. Crowded they also may experience one rotting and taking others with it due to close proximity. I grow them easily in Nambour, I mean almost no effort of special care needed, they grow like weeds.
