PREMIER SEEDS DIRECT – Carrot – DEEP Purple F1-420 Seeds
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 15-25cm (6-10 in.) deep to allow the carrot roots to grow long and shapely. 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, 30-40cm (12-16 in.) 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.) for fresh eating whilst small and 6-10 carrots per 30 cm (1ft.) for mid season crops, depending on the root size you want, and keep weeded and watered.
