My question is about root crops. Something has been attacking my young carrots. The foliage wilts and when I pull them out, they appear cut or eaten almost at the base with only about 3mm of root still there. What could be attacking them?
When growing carrots, beetroot, and parsnips from seed, I water until they have germinated and started growing. I continue to water them each evening. They seem to put on a lot of foliage but the roots are small and seem to stop growing. Am I watering them too often?
