How to Grow

For best growth select a sunny spot with a well prepared deep soil. Sow successive crops 2 weeks apart from mid-spring to early summer. Lay out the seed tape in the desired location and cover it with 6 mm (1/4″) of soil. Space rows 50 cm (20″) apart. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 14-21 day germination period. For best seed emergence, avoid crusting over the soil while the seeds are sprouting. Thin seedlings to 5 cm (2″) apart. Keep the soil evenly moist during the growing season and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers when growing carrots.
