Growing Carrot Seed
This rewarding root vegetable is fairly specific in its requirements for best results. A light, well-drained soil is right, including crumbly loam and coarse sand, but it does not thrive on heavy clay. Thorough preparation of the soil the previous autumn will improve the carrot structure, but do not sow seeds on freshly manured soil, as this will encourage the roots to fork or ‘fang’. The earliest sowings benefit from a warm, sheltered position and, if available, cloche protection. Later sowings are fine in a more open, exposed site. Read more growing tips on our blog..
