How To Grow

Instructions

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")

Plantling Spacing: 5 cm (2")

Row Spacing: 30 cm (12")

Suggestions

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.
