hi everyone, hubby as asked me to ask you all if you can tell him why his swede and carrots have split.. when we pull them the carrots look great then we see a split right down one side leaving them wide open.. same with the swedes..

he thinks it is because of all the rain is that right he asks.

Usually a sign of over-manured ground and too much nitrogen

i cant see that as it is sandy and free draining and not much nutrients in it at all... this is first year they have done it.. strange.

In that case it could be excess water - you can get the same with some stone fruits if it's very wet.

@alina yeah we were thinking might be all the rain causing it.. been so wet.

Splitting is caused by erratic watering...dry then wet etc
