    I only ever grew these once and if I remember correctly they are pretty unstable plants even when planted out and full grown. Seem to remember them getting blown over very easily. I'd be careful about burying the stems too deep, maybe some support would be a better idea.

    Parsnips and carrots (i like a roast parsnip or two) I'm not sure if bags will suffice. If you've got room in the raised bed I'd put them in there without the manure. I'd grow those in a deep loam with a nice dressing of blood fish and bone raked in, maybe a bit of homemade compost if available.
