  • 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 10-15cm (6-10 in.) deep.

  • 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, 20-30cm 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.) as this variety is picked young and small.

  • Keep weeded and watered.

  • Dispose of any thinned seedlings to avoid attracting Carrot Fly.

  • As they grow, push soil up over any exposed roots to prevent a green shoulder.

  • Can be companion planted between onions or with marigolds to help reduce Carrot Fly problems.
