How to sow
Early maturing varieties:
Early varieties of carrot seed can be sown under cloches in March, or outdoors from April to July.
Should be sown outdoors from April to June.
Some varieties are suitable for forcing to produce an early crop. These can be sown under glass from November to February.
Direct sow carrot seed outdoors, in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Carrots dislike freshly manured soils so seed beds are best prepared in autumn, well in advance of spring sowings.
Sow carrot seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½in) in drills 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will take 10 to 20 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 5cm (2″) apart. Where space is limited, growing carrots in containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.
Try growing carrots with spring onions, leeks and mint, whose aromatic leaves deter carrot root fly.
