How To Grow

Carrots need a well dug soil, if there are a lot of stones in the soil, the carrots may grow in strange shapes. They can be grown in containers or window boxes. Carrot root fly can be a significant problem, making the roots inedible. To stop carrot root fly use a very fine mesh netting about 40cm tall to surround the carrot bed.

How/When To Harvesting

Pull up the carrots as soon as they're big enough to eat. It's best to harvest them in the evening to avoid attracting carrot fly.
