Growing Calendar for Carrot Seeds - Nantes 2 (Standard Pack)
Delivery: Mid March to Late August
Get Carrot Nantes 2 for your garden and reap the rewards of handfuls of carrots from as early as June. Nantes 2 is an early summer variety with long cylindrical stump-rooted carrots, easy for harvesting and preparing in the kitchen as well as being uniform and handsome.
A fast maturing, very early and tender variety with little fibrous core makes for a palatable carrot. With a sweet taste and unique flavour Nantes 2 is a variety we would recommend you to sow as early as February under protection which can be as simple as covering with a sheet of horticultural fleece.
With myriad seeds in every packet you make huge savings, avoiding buying heavy carrots from the supermarket which are often plastic-packed and can cause them to sweat ruining their flavour. Enjoy growing carrot Nantes 2 at home for great earthy flavour, a sense of reward and a much lower carbon footprint.
Long cylindrical roots, sweet flavour.
Sow Outdoors: February-August 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.
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.
