WHEN TO SOW

WHERE TO SOW
Sow thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (¾"") deep in rows 30cm (12"") apart. If possible sow carefully so that thinning is not necessary .
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Carrot fly is attracted by the smell whilst thinning, If you have to thin the seedlings, do so in the evening. Water before thinning and remove all the debris. Do not transplant. Aim for roots 5-7cm (2-3"") apart. Young Carrots can always be pulled alternately to 'thin as you eat'.
July to November
A good variety for exhibition use. Try making holes with a bar, filling with sandy compost and sowing seeds at each station for large specimen carrots.
