How to Guide

Sow outdoors

March-June: Sow thinly 1⁄2in (1cm) deep in shallow pre-watered drills, in soil that hasn’t been manured in the last 12 months. Keep soil moist at all times.  Thin to 5-8cm(2-3 in) apart. Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly.



Carrots do best on light, stone free, fertile soils.  Use fleece to keep away carrot fly.  Roots store well if cleaned and packed in boxes of dry sand or compost
