Season and Location
✿ Carrots can be planted from the spring into mid-summer
✿ Carrots like full sun, but can tolerate some shade.
✿ Carrots don’t take a lot of space, so can be grown in containers. Choose one of the shorter carrot types (Chantenay, Nantes, or Thumbelina), and a container at least 12 inches deep.
Key Pests and Diseases
Carrots are prone to carrot fly, wire worms, symphylans, cabbage maggots, onion maggots and other pests. To help repel pests plant carrots with plants in the Allium family (companion planting), such as garlic, onions or chives.
