How to grow large and tasty carrots

Carrots are an unpretentious crop, but to get a generous and tasty harvest, they need to be fed and properly watered. The benefits of carrots have long been known: they improve eyesight, help recover from colds, improve the gastrointestinal tract, have a good effect on blood vessels and have calming properties.

It may seem that growing carrots is very simple: sow, water and wait for the harvest. In fact, to get sweet and large fruits, the culture needs fertilizers. What exactly - read in the material OBOZREVATEL.

First of all, you need to adjust the watering regime. With insufficient moisture carrots will grow hard, dry and bitter. Water the beds should be abundant and regular.

Fertilizers should not be forgotten. At the first stage of growth, nitrogen fertilizer should be applied for better root development. Having received a full-fledged fertilizer, the roots will grow strong and healthy.

But it is worth being cautious - carrots do not need fertilizer in the spring. If you feed it too often and too much, the lateral roots will sprout, and the carrots themselves will grow small, because there will be no room for development.

As soon as you see that the first leaves are sufficiently stretched and developed, you can introduce phosphorus and potassium.

The following solution is also useful:

  • 10 liters of water
  • 1 liter of wood ash
  • 1 tbsp. urea.

All ingredients are mixed and applied as a fertilizer.

In July, vegetable gardeners do not recommend feeding carrots with nitrogen fertilizers.

By the way, wheatgrass puts its roots deep into the soil and takes away the vitality of vegetable crops. In the fight against wheatgrass, you can do without chemical herbicides. How to eradicate the harmful plant quickly, effectively and even enrich the soil - read in the material.
