Growing Instructions

You can sow carrot seeds as soon as the soil in your garden can be worked in the spring (about 3-4 weeks before the last frost). Seeds need consistent moisture until they emerge (considering covering with a wooden board/ burlap/ row cover until germination. Germination on carrot seed is slow and uneven. Sow the seeds less than an inch apart, 1/4" depth and thin them to 2-4 inches after they grow to a few inches. Rows 6-8" apart. Keeping soil moist throughout the germination period is important to success. Misting the planted area daily and covering is recommended.
