Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Outdoors: sow thinly, March-June, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: May-October.
Hint's & Tips
If carrot fly is a problem, delay sowing until May. Keep well watered during dry spells, as this will prevent the roots from splitting.
