Carrot Seeds - Ideal Red 1020-2135

Fast maturing. Ideal to pull as finger carrots.

Sow Outdoors: February-August. Sow little and often for continuous crops thinly ½in (1cm) deep in shallow pre-watered drills, in soil that hasn''t been manured in the last 12 months. Keep soil moist at all times. (Protect early sowings with cloche or fleece).

Thin Out: 2-3in (5-8cm) apart. Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly.

Harvest:June-November

Carrots do best on light, stone free, fertile soils.

Surround the carrot bed with a barrier of fleece at least 60cm high to keep low flying carrot root fly from your crop.

Good for freezing
