Not me Jane.
So will I. for the first time this year my Scarlet Nantes carrot whent to flower, they usually rot off in the wet, I was so excited, but the seeds do not seem to be vivable I think they may need to cross pollinate, anyone know?
Will have to give that a go one day.
I put a purple carrot top in tonight. I've got good plants out of the regular carrot cut tops. Cut tops won't grow a carrot, but they will (I believe) grow a plant that will seed. The seeds will grow carrots. (I actually had no idea what the flowers even looked like, so I am very grateful for the photo!)
If I remember correctly, I think the core was yellow...
Will be interesting to see the outcome.
I had to pull all my carrots (one was bolting) due to replenishing the bed.
Is Cosmic Purple purple all the way through the root? Purple Dragon isn't - seen PD described as 'tri-colour' with a green core. I have seen photos of carrots purple all the way but have yet to find anyone with seeds or seedlings which fit that description.
Wow! Form a queue for the seeds ;-) ... my Purple Dragon sat and smouldered for nearly 2 years until it rotted, never flowered.
