Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Many novice gardeners make the mistake of sowing long carrots in a heavy clay soil resulting in forked, malformed roots. The trick to growing carrots is selecting varieties best suited for your garden’s particular soil conditions. The long, slender carrots require a soil so deep, smooth, and friable that only a lucky few can grow them successfully year after year.

    Unless you’ve prepared a soil that’s light, loose, and free of all obstructions, select shorter varieties of carrots like ‘Nantes Half Long’, ‘Sweet Treat Hybrid’, ‘Sweet Sunshine’, and ‘Red Cored Chantenay’. If your soil is extremely heavy, try ‘Short ‘n Sweet’, which can grow in just about any soil. These are the best carrots for the patio garden as they can be planted in window boxes or any container at least six inches deep.
