Growing Calendar for Carrot Seeds - Namur
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
A very reliable, Nantes-type early spring-cropping carrot, if grown under cover. Has an attractive deep orange colour and shows good disease resistance. A popular choice for exhibition growers on account that they are so good-looking and uniform in growth.
We recommend you sow outdoors from May to June in their permanent position. Sow thinly in a ½ inch (1cm) deep furrow of stone-free soil and place a thin layer of soil over the seeds. If you want to grow carrots in more than one row allow 12in (30cm) between the rows. Once the seedlings appear thin out to 1in (2.5cm) apart as they grow.
We’d advise you to protect plants from carrot root-fly by building a barrier from the ground to 12in (30cm) high around the row. Cling film is great for this held up by canes at either end of the row.
Tip: Water plants generously in dry weather.
