Description

Latin Name – Daucus carota subsp. sativus

Sowing Instructions – Sow from Feb under cloches, cold frame or fleece. Direct sow into well prepared, light well-drained soil that is stone free. Carrots do not like manured soils. Beds are best prepared in the previous autumn. Rake in a general purpose fertilizer 1-2 weeks before sowing. Sow very thinly 10mm deep in drills 20cm apart. Water until germination occurs. Germination takes 10-20 days. When large enough to handle thin to 5cm spacing.

Hints and Tips – Water only to keep the soil moist, excessive water encourages leaf, not root growth. Earth up around growing carrots to prevent green crowns. Carrot fly can be a problem, if so cover with fleece or fine netting.

Number of seeds – Approx 750
