Sow a few rows of colour­ful car­rots.

NZ Gardener - - Letters -

Car­rots will fork or bi­fur­cate if they hit stones, sticks or other ob­sta­cles, so cul­ti­vate your soil to a fine tilth be­fore you sow and if you have heavy clay, dig in sand or gyp­sum. Car­rot seed is tiny, so ei­ther over-sow and thin when the seedlings ap­pear or mix a pinch of seeds with a cou­ple of tea­spoons of sand then sprin­kle it along the row. Even eas­ier, use a seed tape. The seeds are pres­paced so you just bury the tape!
