Carrots will grow according to the amount of space they are given. More space equals larger carrots. In addition to plenty of space, carrots need loose, moist soil in order to grow properly and reach their full potential. Due to the carrots tendency to cross pollinate easily with wild carrot varieties as well as your other garden varieties, you must be sure to separate the individual carrot varieties from one another. Onions and herbs are great companions to carrots as they repel pests such as the Carrot Fly and Root Maggot.
