Sow thinly from March until the end of July direct into well prepared, warm, weed-free soil at a depth of 13mm (½”) (germination 14-21 days). Thin by degrees to a final spacing of 7.5cm (3”) between plants and 30-45cm (12-18”) between rows. Use the thinnings for salad carrots. Carrots grow best in a sunny position in well cultivated soil which has not recently been manured. Sowing to Cropping: 17-20 weeks.
