First sowing should be 2-4 weeks
before average last frost.
Successive plantings can be sown every 3-4 weeks
until 60 days before the first fall frost.
In warm climates with lows above 25 degrees,
they can be grown all winter.
Special Germination Instructions:
Soak seeds in water
for 12 hours before sowing.
(Press them dry between paper towels
afterwards to reduce clumping.)
Plant 4 seeds per inch. When inch tall, thin to
1 plant per every 3 inches.
A favorite gardening tip is to alternate carrot seeds
and radish seeds
. The radishes will mature first.
As they are pulled, the carrots
then have more growing room
and water going towards their roots
from the spaces in between.
