The Carrot Patio Planter
The great thing about the dawn of the patio planter, or indeed the balcony box, is that it really opens up vegetable growing to almost everyone – which makes it a really valuable social tool. These carrot patio planters are a gem and look rather fancy being carrot orange. They will allow a good depth and re-usable year on year.
Depth is important for carrots as they can grow quite long so need deep unrestricted soil, because if carrots meet any obstruction even a stone, this will cause the carrots to grow mishapen and hard to peel and cut up when at cooking time. So this fold away patio planter is deep enough for carrots and most other root vegetables.
Because you are growing in containers, these patio planters allow you to adjust the soil type to suit the vegetables you want to grow which is very hard to do in a normal garden. Whatever soil type you need these patio planters will contain the soil and keep your vegetables growing neat, clean and tidy.
Personally I find homegrown carrots far more flavoursome than their supermarket alternative and these carrot patio planters makes it so easy! My daughter Leah would eat raw carrots all day long and is harder to keep out than the dreaded carrot fly! An odd thing is homegrown carrots don't seem to keep as long and are best used straight from the ground. Why do supermarket carrots keep for so long?
The Carrot Patio Planter is designed to bring you the unmistakable flavour of homegrown carrots even if you don't have a large garden to grow them in. They can be used on patios, balconies and in small gardens. The orange colured planters have sufficient depth of soil / compost for your crop to develop to a good size. They are very handy to use and being tough, can be re-planted year after year.
