Carrot Seed Planting Information:

Carrots prefer cool, wet weather to grow in. Plant seeds directly in the garden where soil is finely tilled. Wet the soil before planting. Planting should take place 25 days before last frost, or in late summer and autumn for winter and spring crops. You can have several succession plantings up until midsummer when it is too hot for growing carrots. Plants grow 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires loose fertile sandy soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil moist to ensure germination. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Pull carrots when they are mature and full color. You can leave carrots in ground over winter by cutting off the green tops and covering with mulch.
