Carrot 'Marion' F1 Hybrid is a Nantes type carrot with a long sowing period making it suitable for all year harvesting. You need never buy another carrot from the supermarket again – think of those savings make as prices go up and up at the shops.

Royal Horticultural Society award-winning Marion seeds produce blunt tipped roots which are exceptionally tender and have a superb, sweet flavour. This variety has a good colour which does not turn green at the shoulder.

Carrots prefer an open sight with light, stone-free soil and are ideally suited to growing in raised beds. We recommend you grow carrots in soil that has not been manured in the last 12 months.

How to Guide

Sowing Outdoors

Potting on/Thining Out

THIN OUT: 2-3in (5-8cm) apart. Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly. 

Harvesting

HARVEST: All year round. Approx 90 days after sowing. Carrots do best on light, stone free, fertile soils. Surround the carrot bed with a barrier of polythene or fleece at least 60cm high to keep low flying carrot root flies from your crop.
