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'.
