Carrot Plants


Anonymous added on June 7, 2015 | Answered

Our carrots have been in the grow bag for 7 months. The foliage is splendid but the carrots are pale and tiny at 1″ in length and thin. Should I give up on them and throw them on the compost or will they eventually grow into a proper carrot?

Too much nitrogen is what happened. When plants have too much nitrogen, they get very leafy but have little fruit and roots. Give the plant some bone meal or something else containing phosphorous to re-balance the phosphorous and nitrogen in the soil.
