WHEN TO SOW

WHERE TO SOW

Sow thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (¾"") deep in rows 30cm (12"") apart. If possible sow carefully so that thinning is not necessary .

WHAT TO DO NEXT

Carrot fly is attracted by the smell whilst thinning, 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 5-7cm (2-3"") apart. Young Carrots can always be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'.

HARVEST

HANDY TIP

If leaving carrots in the ground overwinter, add a straw mulch during bad weather for some added frost protection.
