  • How To Grow
Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Sow in early spring in well cultivated soil. Uniform moisture is critical. Seedlings should be thinned to approximately 5 cm (2”) apart for optimal root formation. Sowings of carrot seed can be repeated every 2 weeks until mid-summer.
  • Planting Depth: 6 mm (1/4")

  • Row Spacing: 30 cm (12")
Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
  • Too much water can cause carrots to crack. They should be kept weeded (a clean mulch can reduce this job). Also, lightly place soil over exposed roots to prevent cracking.
