When to sow
When to Sow Early Nantes Carrot Seeds
April to July
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, as carrot flies are attracted to the smell of thinning the seeds.
What to do Next
If you need to thin the seedlings, do so in the evening, and water beforehand, 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'.
June to November
Early sowings can be made in a cold frame or under cloches. In mild areas, sow in October under cloches or a frame for really early spring use.
Carrots are high in the antioxidant beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body.
