Carrots will grow well in any open, well cultivated, deep garden soil. As the seed is quite small, mix it with some sand when sowing. Once soil temperature rises above 7.5C (45F), sow seed about 7-15mm (1/4-1/2in) deep in rows spaced 45-60cm (18-24in) apart. Stagger several sowings over the next few weeks. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 2-3 week germination period. Avoid crusting over the soil as this will greatly reduce the number of seedlings that emerge from the soil. Thin the seedlings during the early stages of growth until they are 5cm (2in) apart. Keep the plants evenly watered and weed free, and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Harvest any time after the carrot roots develop good colour.
