Propagation

How to Grow in Pots

Carrot is a root vegetable with roots growing up to a feet. Selecting a proper container is essential for a good yield. Most containers are too shallow to grow tap-rooted vegetables like carrots, and containers dry out too quickly. Carrot can grow in a 12" -18” (30-45 cm) deep planter box or pot. Deeper pots or planters work even better. 

Soil

Carrot needs light or sandy loam soil . For container carrots, make your own potting soil  by mixing perlite or vermiculite in soil for good aeration & root growth. If your soil contains too much clay, your carrots will be short and deformed, and difficult to pull from the ground at harvest time!. Make sure the water drains properly . You may use Clay Aggregates for such purpose.. 

Add a small amount of organic fertilizer every 2 weeks to supply nitrogen for top growth. Using Vermicompost is an excellent addition to potting soils for carrots in containers.

Sowing Time

Pests

Make sure your seedling tray or pot (whichever you choose) has a drainage hole in it. If you choose a pot, a 5€ pot should be fine. You can either use well drained soil or make a combination of 1 part each of cocopeat, vermiculite and perlite.

While sowing seeds make sure the soil is damp and not wet. Water the seeds as the soil starts to dry. It should always be moist, but never wet or muddy. Do not water the seeds if the soil is already moist to the touch, as overwatering your plant can be just as harmful as underwatering.

Keep the seedling tray in bright filtered light to begin with. Slowly introduce the plant to morning sun and bring it back in before the afternoon sun sets in. In a weeks time you can put it in direct sunlight.
