Cultivation Advice Carrot Amsterdam Forcing Early

  • Dig or till the carrot bed when the soil is on the dry side to avoid making lumps.
  • Work the soil to a fine texture 15-25cm (4-6 in.) deep to allow the carrot roots to grow long and shapely.
  • Avoid freshly-manured soil, which may produce hairy, rough roots and will cause forks and splits;
  • Sow seed thinly in rows from late winter – Jul, 1cm (1/2 in.) deep, 23-30cm (9-12 in.) between the rows as soon as the danger of hard frost has passed. Try to get about 4 seeds per 2cm (1 in.).
  • Thin to 2in between carrots when large enough to handle. Dispose of thinned seedlings to avoid attracting Carrot Fly.
