Sowing Months Harvest Months

1 packet (400 carrot seeds) (TKA54038)

  • Sow outdoors from late-winter to mid-summer. Sow thinly in a prepared seedbed, 1cm (1/2in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart.
  • Germination will take 10-20 days.
  • Thin-out seedlings when large enough to handle, and transplant to 10cm (4in) apart. This helps to reduce the risk of carrot root fly attack.
  • Later thinnings will provide smaller, tender roots, large enough to be used.
  • Can also be sown under cloches from January to February for earlier cropping in late spring.
  • Carrots are high in antioxidant beta-carotene, which the body can convert to vitamin A.
