Carrots need a firm fertile crumbling soil that has not been recently manured in a sunny spot.
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. Try to thin in the evening to avoid carrot root fly.
Keep well watered to prevent the carrots turning woody.
 
Germination takes between 14 and 21 days.
Sow March - June
Harvest June - November
Companion Plants Leeks, onions, parsley, radish, tomato, lettuce and marigolds.
Do not plant with kohlrabi, parsnip or fennel.
Pull up the small carrots from June onwards. October is the time to lift the main crop for overwintering. If the ground is hard ease them up with a fork.
A good source of vitamin A.
Use for Boiling and steaming and using raw in salad.
