Sow thinly (to avoid attack from Carrot Fly) into a finely raked, moist soil, 1.8cm (¾") deep, in rows 23–30cm (9–12") apart. Alternatively for raised beds etc. grow in small blocks alleviating the need for rows. Carefully, thin seedlings if necessary until young plants are 5–7.5cm (2–3") apart.

HEALTH BENEFITS: Carrots are high in vitamin A which is good for rejuvinating your sight – see they really do help you to see in the dark! Nutrient availability is increased with light cooking – not like school dinners used to be! Roots are storage organs, so shop bought produce can contain pesticide residues – all the more reason to grow your own!
