Well-shaped carrots great for growing directly in soil or in containers. Shows great resistance to going to seed too early. A great-looking crop fit for showing off at local fetes!
Sow outdoors:Create a shallow row in the soil. Water the row well before sowing. Sow seeds thinly in the row and cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil. Keep soil moist until seedlings are established. When seedlings produce a head of leaves thin to 2cm (3/4 in) then thin again in a couple of weeks to 10cm (4in) apart.
Ensure soil is sandy and free-draining so roots develop unimpeded. Water well especially in particularly warm periods.
If you want to create multiple rows, space rows 30cm (12in) apart.
Harvest crops with a small border fork to avoid damaging the fully-developed carrots.
