A fried told me to cut the top off a shop bought parsnip and stick it in the ground so the end is exposed. Within 2 weeks the plant is now approx 6 inches high and I will have to remove it from the small container I put it in (not thinking I would succeed!). Will this shock the plant,kill it,or what do u suggest?
