Carrots are loved by many gardeners. Because of their radiant colors, diverse shapes, and sizes, a nutritional value demand for carrots is always high.
Mastering the right carrot culture is well worth the effort as a grower. You will grow more carrots for your consumption and the market at large.
Among other root crops, carrots are best planted directly into the garden in a prepared seedbed. To prepare the seedbed, ensure that your soil is soft enough to work by tilling and adding organic compost amendments.
To build a good profile for your soil, it is essential to carry out a soil test to test the pH level. Carrots do not do well when the soil is acidic; if you need to amend your soil in any way do so the year before growing carrots.
Space your seeds at least 2 to 4 inches apart, planting them under a quarter to half an inch deep. Carrot seeds are very tiny, and this kind of spacing can be achieved by using a seed injector or thinning them after germinating
