Here are a few great tips for planting carrots in a backyard vegetable garden!
Soil preparation is key when sowing carrots in your home vegetable garden.
Add plenty of organic materials to the garden soil before planting carrot seeds.
Seeds will germinate in temperatures as low as 40 degrees, but grow better in temperatures reaching nearer 50 degrees.
Carrots require enriched soil that is moist, fertile, and drains well.
To prepare the soil for growing organic carrots, work plenty of organic matter into the seedbed before sowing carrots.
Add compost to the soil a month prior to planting and again two weeks after the seeds are planted.
Avoid using green manure.
When preparing the bed make certain you remove all large debris such as sticks and stones that could block the vegetable’s growth down below.
Turn the garden bed soil and rake through it several times.
