Sow & Grow:
Outdoors: sow thinly, February-July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: June-November. ‘Baby’ carrots are best lifted when 5cm (2″) long. Mature roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
