How to Grow:
Sow thinly in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Cover lightly with 5mm (1/4in) of soil. Firm gently and keep moist. For continuous crops sow every 2-3 weeks. Seedlings appear in 10-21 days.
Alternate early harvests between the young carrots to allow room for the remaining crop to mature. Further thinning is not required if sown thinly. Keep well-watered to prevent crop from splitting. Ensure beds are kept weed free and moist at all times.
When to Sow/Plant Seed:
All year round avoiding the hottest and coldest months
