Fair enough...if ecokid is over 60, has plenty of spare time and wants to exercise on his hands and knees for hours on end there is another way.  


Perhaps it's just me .... but I enjoy it

Hello Garden Fairy

I use an area of the garden that has been manured for a previous crop, so that the manure has been well broken down by the time I'm ready to sow the carrots - then I use a light sprinkling of Fish, Blood and Bone when preparing the bed.  It's an organic slow-release fertiliser and I find that's all they need.  Too much fertiliser and you'll get a lot of leaf and no carrot.

Oooh thank you Jo, just what I needed!


Fg, hail was battering the windows here when we went to bed, and again this morning!
