OUR TIPS
Carrots grow best in full sun. They also need lots of watering, and enjoy well-drained soil that is deep, loose, and free of stones and heavy clumps that can distort the roots. If you have heavy soil, add plenty of compost and top soil before planting. If your patch of earth proves a problem, plant carrots in raised beds that are at least 20cm deep or in large containers filled with quality potting soil. Water regularly as raised beds and containers dry out faster than traditional planting beds.

BRINGS TO YOUR GARDEN

Drought resistant

HARVESTING
Pull carrots as soon as they have their full orange color. For storing in winter, wait to harvest until after the tops have been exposed to a few frosts; the cold will make them sweeter. You can also overwinter carrots in the ground by mulching them heavily with straw. Enjoy digging them out over winter - be sure to eat them all before new growth in spring.
