Sow outdoors

Sow seeds thinly 1cm (1/2in) deep in pre-watered rows, and cover with a little soil. Allow 15cm (6in) between rows. Carrots do best on light, stone-free soils.

Thin

As seedings develop, thin initially to 2cm (1in) apart. Later, thin again to about 5cm (2in) apart. Thinnings are delicious cooked as finger carrots or raw in salads. Thinning is best kept to a minimum as crushed leaves attract carrot root fly. Keep soil moist after thinning.

Advice

Mix seeds with silver sand to make sowing easier and with less need for thinning. Plant alongside spring onions, leeks, mint, marigolds. Their scent can repel carrot fly.
