Carrot Amsterdam Forcing 3
Item Number: 11101
As the name implies this variety is highly suited to being forced and is the earliest of all varieties. Very sweet flavour, good colour and small core. A delightful flavour early in the season. First choice for early sowing under cloches and produces small cylindrical roots that freeze well.

WHEN TO SOW
March to May
WHERE TO SOW
Sow thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (¾") deep in rows 30cm (12") apart. March sowings under cloches, later sowings should not need covering.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
If you have to thin the seedlings, do so in the evening. Water before thinning and remove all the debris. Do not transplant. Aim for roots 2cm (¾") apart. Young Carrots can be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'.
For Christmas Carrots, try a September sowing in a large 60cm (24") deep container in a frost-free greenhouse.
