Outdoor Sowing

Sow thinly in a prepared seed bed in rows 30cm apart. Cover lightly with 1.5cm of fine soil. Firm gently and keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. For continuous crops, sow every 2-3 weeks.

Growing On

Keep well watered to prevent the roots slitting. Keep weed free.

Harvesting

When harvesting, select young carrots alternately from the row, allowing the remainder to develop fully. No other thinning is needed if sown thinly. Lift in October or November, remove soil from roots and store in dry sand.
