Growing Carrot

I got carrot seeds to grow in 1 week, that's right, I soaked the seeds in warm water for 24 hours then sowed them out & covered with a thin layer of sugar cane mulch.

An old trick was to put a damp hessian bag on the seeds until they germinated. Or today you could use shade cloth - probably the 90% the best. Cost about $10/m 1800mm wide.

I can just imagine it, tiny wet seeds, it’s difficult enough to sow when they are dry. I planted my seeds in a large pot hope they are successful, I like your tips

I just buy the ones on tape,so basically just lay the tape down and lightly cover and water
