Carrots need a firm fertile soil that has not been manured in the last year. Dig in autumn then apply a general fertiliser two weeks before sowing. Keep well watered during dry weather to prevent them going woody. 
Try to thin the carrots in the evening to avoid the carrot root fly. 
 
Sow from March onwards under cloches to harvest an early crop in June and successional sowings through to August. The seed is extremely small but try to sow as thinly as possible in drills 1cm deep and in rows 15cm apart when the seedlings appear thin to around 10cm apart.
