1 TIPS FOR CAR­ROTS

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Perfect Planting -

• 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.
