Vegetables with a way of going to seed, somehow (6)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'vegetables' is the definition.
(swede is a kind of vegetable)
'with a way of going to seed somehow' is the wordplay.
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'a way' becomes 's' (Compass direction - South).
'of going' becomes 'w' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'to' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'somehow' indicates anagramming the letters.
'seed' is an anagram of 'edes'.
's' put next to 'w' is 'sw'.
Can you help me to learn more?
