Sow end February-early July. Advised minimum distances between rows 15cm (6"). Ideal distance between plants in the row 1.3cm (½"). You can sow carrot seed direct into finely raked soil when conditions are favourable in spring, then at 2-3 week intervals until the end of July. Sow in July for harvesting autumn to Christmas.

Special varieties have been chosen which are particularly suitable for eating at a young stage when they are quite small. Eat them raw in salads, lightly steamed or use in stir-fry recipes. For best results you must ensure the soil is fertile and well prepared. Dig in garden compost or peat prior to sowing or planting and apply fertiliser between crops. HEALTH BENEFITS: Very high in vitamin A (For growth, healthy hair, skin, bones, teeth and eyes as well as resistance to respiratory infections). COOKING HINTS: Unlike many vegetables, the availability of nutrients is actually increased with cooking - as long as not overdone. With our mini-vegetables even the smallest plot or patio containers can yield a wealth of succulent, tasty produce. By sowing closely together in blocks or broad drills and cropping while young, you can fit far more into a small area.
