1 TIPS FOR CARROTS
• Carrot seeds are tiny, so mix the seeds in a glass jar with dry river sand, then pour the mix along a shallow furrow in the garden bed and cover with soil. Carrots also don’t like being disturbed – such as being transplanted or thinned out – so the sand acts as a seed spacer.
• You can sow carrot seeds with a seed tape – you can also get seed discs and seed mats – in which the seeds are pre-sown in the tape and are correctly spaced. Prepare the soil by tilling, then just place the tape along the ground and cover with the recommended depth of top soil. Seed tape is a handy aid for people with arthritis or mobility issues, too.
