North Humberside, United Kingdom
this year for the first time I have tried growing carrots and parsnips, from, seed, I bought a small greenhouse and the seeds did well, i pricked them out in to 10inch deep containers about 4 inches apart, but the crop is awful , the leaves grew real high about 2feet or more, and started flowering, the carrots are misshaped and twisted about 2 inches long, I planted them in compost, and watered well, and used miracle grow, whats gone wrong,?? should i not have used miracle grow which is for flowers? should I use soil instead of compost? are the containers deep enough? I want to have anther go next year and would welcome any tips.
