Carrot Seed Planting Information:

Carrots prefer cool, wet weather to grow in. Plant seeds directly in the garden where soil is finely tilled. Wet the soil before planting. Planting should take place 25 days before last frost, or in late summer and autumn for winter and spring crops. You can have several succession plantings up until midsummer when it is too hot for growing carrots. Plants grow 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires loose fertile sandy soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil moist to ensure germination. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Pull carrots when they are mature and full color. You can leave carrots in ground over winter by cutting off the green tops and covering with mulch.


ALS – Alternaria Leaf Spot

Scientific Name: Alternaria brassicicola, Alternaria cucumerina, Alternaria dauci

Type: Fungus

Alternaria Leaf Spot, also known Alternaria Leaf Blight, is a world-wide fungal disease that affects the growth of broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cantaloupes & melons, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers, kale, kohlrabi, pumpkins, radishes, rutabaga, squash, tomatoes, turnips, and watermelons. Symptoms may first develop on young plants where leaf spots develop, plants become stunted, and damping off may occur. Greenish-brown lesions appear on the leaves, and turn from dark brown to black spots. The disease may appear on the leaves at any stage and start off as concentric circles and mature to lesions with a bulls eye appearance. The leaves curl, turn yellow, wither, and eventually die off, and heavy infestations may cause complete defoliation. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. Increase space between the plants to maximize air flow and drying of the leaves. The disease is favorable when temperatures are 75-82 F and usually occur when moisture and humidity are very high. Plan on using a 3 year crop rotation and avoid planting in the same location, year after year, as the disease can survive in the soil for 8 years. Fungicides can help manage the disease. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.
