WHEN TO SOW

April to August

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. Can also be sown February to March in a greenhouse or under cloches.

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 always be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'.

MATURITY

May to November

HANDY TIP

For Christmas Carrots, try a September sowing in a large 60cm (24") deep container in a frost-free greenhouse. Under ideal conditions, this variety could be ready to pull 45-50 days after sowing.
