Good afternoon everyone. I planted different types of carrots in 5 really big plastic pots; Wilko's 'large' carrots, Autumn King, Early Nantes and Chanteney red cored. I then placed some very thick polycarbonate on top for about 10/15 days. They germinated, Early Nantes being the slowest. They have caught up now and they are all about 2cm tall. I am not a scientific gardener at all, but I think some veg seeds need a bit of heat to get going.
Weird, wet and windy in the Fens today, so it has been a sewing not sowing day.
