Description

A root vegetable which grows well in deep cool soil. Hardy. Carrots take about 3 weeks to show themselves and the first leaves look like grass . If broadcast sowing, mix with radish seeds which will germinate quickly and indicate the sown area. In hot dry areas, water well before seeding then cover with boards to maintain the moisture and cool soil for more successful germination. Check every week or so.
