Carrots need a firm fertile crumbling soil that has not been been manured in the last year. Dig the ground in autumn then apply a general fertiliser two weeks before planting. Keep well watered during dry spell to stop them getting woody. 
 
Sow from March onwards under cloches then make successional sowings through to June.
The seed is extremely small but try to sow as thinly as possible in drills 1cm deep and in rows 30cm apart when the seedlings appear thin to around 10cm apart.
