Problems when growing carrots

Speaking about varieties of short carrots, it should be noted that sometimes summer residents plant varieties in the soil, and by autumn they get unsightly short and thick roots. This problem should not be confused with the varietal characteristics of the fruit.

Not only does it grow ugly, it also tastes absolutely unsuccessful. What is the reason? This question, alas, is often asked.

As a rule, there may be several reasons for this:

  • an excess of manure, which does not like carrots anyway;
  • the seeds were planted too often (you should follow the sowing pattern);
  • damage from a carrot fly, which is terrible for many varieties and hybrids;
  • abundant excess watering;
  • improper cultivation of imported imported varieties.

As for watering, you need to take into account the specifics of the vegetable crop: for growth, the root crop deepens into the soil in order to find as much water as possible. If watering is excessive, the carrots will stop growing, they will begin to get fat, which will ruin their appearance.

Advice! If the carrots are planted too often, it is not necessary to pluck them out for thinning. It is enough to cut off the green growth and growth will stop.

Short and thick carrots with deformities are obtained in those beds where the soil is compacted. Do not forget that carrots love loose soil, they must breathe in it. If the fruit grows with difficulty, then you should not blame the bad seeds afterwards. And also take a look at the video below on how to grow this crop.

We hope that our tips will come in handy, and the yield of varietal short carrots in your beds will be high.
