Seed Swaps

carrots - danvers

28 Dec 2010
Sunny 10°C / 50°F

seems to be taking a long time to grow. they sprouted and have true leaves but thats it… stillonly about 11/2 inches tall. what gives?




They take long when they are growing in semi-shade conditions like half day sun they need a minimum of 5 hours of sun but if you give them 8 – 12 hours they grow twice as fast as long as you feed them and water them.

The bed where I have my Carrots gets dappled light the whole day with occasional full sun, only after four months did a few start becoming ready but not many, one even bolted (yay now I can get free seeds).

Carrots can take a while to grow if your weather hasn’t really warmed up. I have found that mine typically are slow while the average daytime temperature is 60F or less. Once the weather warmed up the growth rate increased.

thanks Morrigan
the tops at least seem to be growing more now. don’t know what’s going on down below. Is there a way to check them?
