Cultivation Advice Carrot Scarlet Nantes

  • Dig or till the carrot bed deeply when the soil is on the dry side to avoid making lumps.
  • Work the soil to a fine texture 15-25cm (6-10 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, 1cm (1/2 in.) deep, 30-40cm (12-16 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 16-20 carrots per 30 cm (1ft.) for fresh eating and 6-10 carrots per 30 cm (1ft.)
  • for mature crops, depending on the root size you want, and keep weeded and watered.
  • Dispose of thinned seedlings to avoid attracting
  • Carrot Fly. As they grow, push soil up over any exposed roots to prevent a green shoulder.
