For the earliest crops (e.g. Amsterdam Forcing or Ideal) sow in frames or under cloches February–March. Start outdoor sowings from early March choosing a warm and well-drained position. For maincrops, sow April-July. 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.
 

The carrot is a storage organ and hence shop bought produce can be high in pesticide residues - so a good reason to grow your own. 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.
