I have a raised bed comprising a mix of sieved soil and spent compost. I have grown various things in it this year: lettuce, brassicas (to plant out elsewhere) and carrots. The carrots were ok, but not great (one crop failed, others have produced just short carrots). Any ideas what I can do either now or later to improve the bed for a better carrot crop next year?
