Cultivation Advice Carrot Tendersweet Organic

  • 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 10-15cm (6-10 in.) deep.
  • 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,
  • 20-30cm 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.) as this variety is pick young and small.
  • Keep weeded and watered.
  • Dispose of any thinned seedlings to avoid attracting Carrot Fly.
  • As they grow, push soil up over any exposed roots to prevent a green shoulder.
  • Can be companion planted between onions or with marigolds to help reduce Carrot Fly problems.
