Useful/additional information Sow at 4 week intervals. Sow thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 23-30cm (9-12in) apart and thin out only if necessary to 2.5cm (1in) apart for small sweet roots. If larger roots are required, carefully thin out to 5cm (2in) apart. Prefers well drained, moist, rich soil and cool conditions. Later sowings provide an essential ingredient for stews and casseroles. The last thinnings will provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest summer to autumn as soon as the roots are big enough to pull. For early carrots sow in a cold frame or under cloches during February and March.
