|Useful/additional information||Carrots prefer a deep, rich, well drained soil which does not contain fresh manure or compost. Sow seeds spring to mid summer in drills 1cm (½in) deep, spaced 30cm (12in) apart. As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, start thinning them out so that they are finally 10cm (4in) apart.The last thinnings should provide tender roots just large enough to be used. Harvest summer and autumn.|
