of our carrots have curly bottoms. What could be causing this?
is likely to be caused by stones, plant roots, lumps of dirt or
compost in the soil, or delayed thinning.
Prepare the soil so that
it is crumbly, with roots, stones and clumps removed. Thin carrots
when they are 5 cm high to 2-3 cm apart.
