    There are a few reasons your carrots may be growing sideways. How deep is your wooden bed? If the container is not sufficiently deep, the carrots will turn about and grow sideways. Secondly, what is the soil like? If the carrots encounter packed soil and find the going tough, they will take the path of least resistance and grow sideways.
