Make a seed bed by lightly forking the soil, treading out the air pockets with your boots and raking it level. One thing to be aware of is root crops are not fond of stony ground - if you need to work on your soil, grow your root crops in raised beds or containers. If not, however, root crops can be sown straight into the ground once the soils have warmed up. A good way to tell this is by watching your lawn – when it begins to grow in spring, the grass will start to move when the soil reaches 5°C. If you would like to start a little earlier, placing fleece over your sown root crops will warm the soil for you and protect from any frosts. As your root crops start to grow, remove alternating plants to allow the others room to grow and water moderately once cropped. When thinning carrots like this, make sure you move any leaves to their new home in the compost bin so as not to attract the unwanted carrot fly.

There is another great advantage to growing these plants organically – you only need to wash them! Peeling is unnecessary, so you won’t miss out on all the important roughage.
