Session Two Care Card
Carrot
 
  • Your carrot plants will need to be watered every two days but if the weather is very hot water them every day.

  • Keep your carrots free of weeds - weeds are any other plant which grows near your carrot plants which aren't the carrot plant!

  • As the carrots begin to swell in the container you may see the tops of them poking out of the soil, cover these with soil to stop the top of the carrots going green.

  • Covering the tops will also help to stop the carrot fly which is a common pest of carrots.
