Chitting Carrots

I read in Grow Your Own that a good way to get a great crop of carrots was to 'chit' them.

On a plate, place some kitchen towel and spray with water.  Sprinkle the seed and cover with cling film.  Keep them moist and in 4-5 days they sprout.


Here is a close up and you can see the roots coming.

Of course its not all that easy to get them off the paper towel on to your soil.   I ended up flicking them off with a plant/seed tag.

Now they are in bags in my greenhouse (tomato bags from Wilkos)- I'm not going to plant them outside.  My wife is doing her trial of carrots in a raised bed.

So the competition is on. :)


Wilkos bags wilko-grow-bag-tomato-x-2-46ltr  Yes I know they are tomato bags, but also they are just right for carrots and only 3 quid for 2.
