When should I plant Chantenay carrots?
Keeping this in view, when Should carrots be planted?
When to sow carrot seeds Carrot seeds can be sown from early spring right through to late August and can be harvested almost all year round. Most varieties are sown outdoors between April and July. Early cultivars such as the 'Nantes 2' can be sown under a cloche or started in greenhouses from February.
Likewise, can you plant carrots in the same place? Re: Growing carrots in same place As you've had no evidence of carrot root fly at all, then you should be fine to grow them in the same soil again from that point of view. However, by growing a crop in the same place in successive years, you use up the nutrients that particular plant needs.
Herein, how deep do containers need to be for carrots?
Container size (6 – 15 inches deep) may vary according to the carrot type you're growing and planting depth it requires. For growing carrots in containers, a pot that is at least 12 inches deep and as wide as possible can be used to grow most of the carrot varieties.
How long can you leave carrots in the ground?
Carrots stored in cold moist conditions will keep for 4 to 6 months. Carrots exposed to very cold temperatures will become bitter tasting. Carrots left in the ground too long will be touch, woody, and may crack. Check roots during storage and remove those that begin to deteriorate.
