Before planting carrots, you need to carefully prepare the garden bed. Two or three weeks before planting, fertilizers (preferably organic) must be applied to the garden and dug up. When the bed is dug up, you need to drain the soil well. Keep in mind that carrots are demanding on the soil, long and even root crops grow only on deeply cultivated light soils.
We select seeds by variety and by the principle of trust in their producer. Further, in the bed, you need to make rows at a distance of about 10 - 15 cm from each other. Then we water the rows with water and plant the seeds at a distance of 5 - 10 cm. After planting, it is recommended to cover with a breathable film.

Like any other plant, carrots require care. When the carrot sprouts, you need to weed it out so as not to let the weeds drown it out. If the summer is very hot, water should be moderate and regular.
The most dangerous enemy is the carrot fly, which eats up the passages in the roots, after which they begin to rot. The most effective methods of combating this disease are to treat the soil with pirimiphos-methyl before sowing or to alternate rows of carrots with onions or garlic.
Well, that's probably all. As you can see, there is nothing difficult in planting and growing carrots. Follow the recommendations above and you are guaranteed a good harvest.
