I've recently re-planted my carrots into my new garden and they've almost all turned purple.
The carrots were originally planted in a pot and grew into about 3-4cm high green sprouts. I'm a newbie so planted way too many (100-200 in a pot about 50x50cm) but under the instruction of my grandpa I separated the small 4cm green sprouts which has small roots on them and planted them spaced apart in my new garden. They looked fine for the first few days but have now almost all turned a dark purple colour.
Since they went into the new garden they've been watered very well, the soil is always moist. The old carrots (I had tonnes left) are still in the pot next to my garden and are a beautiful green colour, and I water them the same amount roughly.
Can anybody answer why my carrots have turned this colour and what I should do?
That shows the still planted carrots that are a normal green and I've circled the best examples of the purple. It's hard to see in the photos because of the soil and purple colour similarity. I'm aware of this and apologize.
Here's another of the carrots close up
And here's one of many of the purple carrots
Please let me know if I can help any other ways, I'll retake the photos in better lighting somehow if necessary. Thanks.
