Latin Name – Daucus carota
Sowing Instructions – Sow thinly, directly into a drill 1.5cm deep. Aim for a seed every 2.5cm to avoid the need for too much thinning and sow in rows 15cm apart. If you do need to thin do it at night when the carrot-fly is not around. Lightly cover the seed with fine soil and water carefully with a fine hose. Seedlings should appear at about 17 days.
Hints and Tips – Water at night and keep watered in dry periods. Try not to weed especially during the day as it may attract carrot-fly.
Number of seeds:- Approx 1,000
