Can someone suggest a good carrot which will do well in containers?
It might be better to grow a fast crop carrots as autumn king is a main crop so in the ground for longer may be try Nantes ones (frubund) or Amsterdam forcing. I did not have luck with carrots slugs eating them and the ones in pots not big about 1- 2 Cm's very small. will try again though with fast crop in pots.
Faster grown carrots should turn out better because harvest quicker. If that helps you
That does help Gardengirl, thanks hun Leggi, I think you could be right there as well. Thanks guys
Hi,i use a carrot called Atlas in my containers,it is a round carrot so its possible to grow in shallow pots/containers too.
If they have been stored well - dry yes fine, maybe test some out on damp kitchen roll see if they germinate at all - before sowing where you want, sow direct is best.
Hi Fred, I will have a look at them. Thanks. Heading to the GC at the weekend so will be looking them up. Thanks mate
