  • 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 15-25 cm (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, 1 cm (1/2 in.) deep, 30-40 cm (12-16 in.) between the rows as soon as the danger of hard frost has passed. Try to get about 4 seeds per 2 cm (1 in.).
  • Thin to 16-20 carrots per 30 cm (1 ft.) for fresh eating whilst small and 6-10 carrots per 30 cm (1 ft.) for mid season 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.
