Plant Spacing

Sowing Outdoors

Sow seed thinly in pre-watered shallow rows, and cover with a little soil. Allow about 30cm (12in) between rows.


As seedlings develop, thin them initially to about 2cm (1in) apart. Later thin again to about 10cm (4in) apart. Thinnings are delicious cooked as ‘finger’ carrots or raw in salads. Keep soil moist until seedlings are established.


Carrots do best in light, well dug, stone free soils which have been recently manured. Harvest with a small border fork to avoid damage to the crop.
