    Mom allocates a plot of 4-5 square meters for carrots, and collects 4-5 boxes from it. Simple secrets help to achieve this result.

    Buys only pelleted seeds. Sows them in the second half of April, one at a distance of 15 cm from each other and 20 cm between rows. It leaves 10 cm up to the sides on both sides. This eliminates the need for thinning, helps to save seeds and protects the plants from injuries that occur during thinning. But there is an important nuance: before the emergence of shoots, the ground must always be wet, otherwise the pelleted seeds may not sprout.
    2. Grows carrots only on raised beds. The fact is that the soil on our site is dense, which is not pleasant to the capricious root crop. Therefore, he fills the box with garden soil, mixed in equal parts with humus (compost), fermented sawdust and sand.
    3. After sowing the seeds, it abundantly sheds the grooves with a warm pink solution of potassium permanganate. Sprinkles with sawdust and spills with warm water from a spray can. Seedlings appear in 7-10 days. Further, all care is reduced to rare weeding (until the tops close) and watering in drought.

    Before planting, I bury the seeds of carrots in an old sock in the garden for a week, and the carrots emerge without problems.

    Carrot shoots in three days

    Before sowing, I soak carrot seeds in gasoline for 20 minutes. Then I sprinkle them on a newspaper, dry them and sow them to a depth of 1,5 cm into well-moistened soil. Seedlings appear in 3-5 days.

      Carrot seeds contain a large amount (1,6%) of essential oils. It is the oils that prevent the germination of seeds, but at the same time protect against temperature changes during storage. Therefore, before sowing carrot seeds, it is advisable to get rid of the oils that have already become unnecessary. You can use the method described by the author. If there is no gasoline, dilute 0,5 ml of vodka in 50 liters of water. Soak the seeds in the solution for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse them in water, dry and sow.
