You can also sow in several planting dates and varieties of different maturation duration.To article content ↑What kind of carrots to plant in early spring to get an earlier harvest? There are many early, medium and late varieties. If the former are intended for the first salads and vitamin juices, then the latter and the third are for autumn and winter consumption. Each gardener decides for himself what kind of carrot delegates he invites to his beds.

There is no big secret in a good harvest - the carrot will grow almost by itself to an impressive size in light, loose and nutritious loams and sandy beds, but on heavy clay and waterlogged soils you will get pale and gnarled roots. Stagnation of moisture for it is generally destructive! But the drought will not turn anything good either - the roots will be fibrous, coarse.

Planting carrots in the spring - the first shoots and thinning

) Carrots are sown on time. So that the seeds did not sit for a whole month in the half-frozen ground, but also did not fall on the very first day under the heat and drought,

Set a contradictory task: a big carrot is never tasty. Tasty carrots are not gigantic in size. Previously, the carrot variety was planted everywhere (in the old days it was the name for carrots), but then technical varieties of larger sizes and cores appeared.

Prepared in this way the soil should stand until frost.

Variety selection

Prepare the bed for planting:

  • Root crops tend to accumulate nitrates, and they can become poisonous. Go
  • The meaning of planting is that, in addition to the fertile and friable land, they prepare the beds in the fall, dig up and make furrows.
  • The Queen of the Autumn is delicious and well kept
  • A few general tips on planting carrots before winter:

Long stored, gives a high yield.

Of course, especially since planting under the winter eliminates the many troubles that necessarily accompany the planting of carrots in the early spring.

Location selection

Further care of planting is the frequent and regular weeding of the soil. The first loosening of the soil is carried out when the seedlings germinate. This is necessary to remove even young weeds, which have a very negative impact on the growth and development of plants.

Nantes. This variety is suitable for growing on dense soils, gives juicy and tasty fruits up to fifteen centimeters long.

Put the compost in the garden, it will make it warm,

Planting dates

In fact, how to plant carrots in granules, there is a little trick - you need to pour plenty of beds before and after planting so that the water soaked the shell and the carrots sprout faster. The method of planting carrots in granules is very convenient. Later, no need to spend a lot of time weeding the beds with carrots. Carrots immediately grow at a certain distance from each other.

Dig the ground with a shovel to the depth of the bayonet,

The level of acid balance is also important, because carrots do not like acidified soils.

And in early spring, as soon as it becomes possible to approach these furrows, carrot seeds are sown. Just before this, the seeds are soaked in a warm (like a hand tolerated) water solution for 30 minutes or an hour. Then the seeds are slightly ventilated to create a flowability state, and sown in the furrows.

In order for the seeds to sprout, they must swell, soak in water, so they need to be watered a lot.

Diseases and pests - prevention

Carrot loves to sit long in the ground - sometimes shoots appear almost a month later. At this time, weeds are already rampant on the beds, so some summer residents sow lettuce or spinach seeds along with carrots, which serve as beacons for the gardener. In the planning of the garden, keep in mind that the best predecessors for the root crop are tomatoes, cabbage and potatoes.

But to sow carrots must be rare lines, fill the grooves with peat and water carefully.

How to plant carrots, so that it was large and sweet?

Fall Queen of Autumn, you will not lose. Large, tasty, well kept

If before the onset of stable cold weather the seeds have time to germinate, then all the seedlings will die, so it is best to plant the carrots in already slightly frozen soil, for example, at the end of November. And the preparation of the soil itself is best completed by mid-October.

Less sweet variety, it ripens not as fast as Nantes carrots, but it tolerates not only cold, but also the lack of the necessary amount of water.


In one bucket of water dissolve two glasses of wood ash.In the process of planting this crop should be considered crop rotation. This plant is not recommended to be planted in the same place for several years.

New varieties of carrots:This method of sowing is very convenient - the carrot seeds on the tape are located at a certain distance from each other and you will not need to calculate at what distance to put the seed in the soil. Planting carrots on a ribbon is very simple - put a ribbon with seeds into the prepared groove, roll it along the entire length. Then you sprinkle with earth and seal the landings (you can pat the board on the ground covered with earth) and water it, the paper tape disintegrates by itself.

On a ribbon.As soon as the first leaves appeared, you should take up thinning. Many gardeners are in no hurry, waiting for the roots to become edible. However, this is a mistake that will reduce your harvest at times - the roots will interfere with each other, deform and linger in development. Therefore, after the first thinning, leave 3-4 cm between plants, after three weeks, double the distance. Each thinning should end with abundant watering.

To make the carrots large, you need to plant the seeds so that there is about 6 cm distance between two seeds, and you need to make the ground very loose to a depth of 20 cm. But I don’t need to try to make the carrot too big, too large carrots (or rather too thick) are rarely sweet and tasty. The sweetness of carrots depends largely on the variety, and not on how it was planted.​2​
