Carrot Seeds - Oxheart

Daucus carota sativus

“An old french variety sometimes known as ‘Guerande’ and originally grown in the neighbourhood of Nantes. A snub nosed variety, which will grow well in containers or shallow soil. The roots can be 10-13cm (4-5”) wide at the shoulder, and will not get much longer. The name gives a perfect description on the shape of this carrot. Sweet and tender, ‘Oxheart’ is a quick grower with less foliage than you’d expect from the size of the root, and its an excellent keeper.”

Start to sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring (about 3-4 weeks before the last frost) when the soil is warm, moist and weed-free. Seeds need fine soil and consistent moisture until they emerge. Thin out the resulting seedlings to 5-10cm (2-4") apart. Cover with garden fleece to protect against Carrot fly. Alternatively, sow into large containers of moist well-drained seed compost. Cover with soil and thin as they grow. Use thinnings as baby carrots.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
