When to sow

March to May

Where to sow

Sow thinly direct into the growing site 1.5cm (3/4") deep in rows 30cm (2"/3") apart. If possible sow carefully so that thinning is not necessary. Traditionally seed is mixed with fine dry sand to prevent sowing too thickly.

What to do next

If you have to thin the seedlings, do so in the evening. Water before thinning and remove all debris. Do not transplant. Aim for roots 4-6 cm (2-3") apart. Young carrots can be pulled alternately to "thin"   as you eat.

Maturity
 
July onwards
