Planting Directions: Direct sow in early spring to midsummer when soil temperature is between 45° to 85°. Plant seeds 1/4” deep as sparingly as possible spacing rows 6-8” apart. Thin to at least 2” between plants. Prepare the soil in spring by working in a generous amount of well rotted compost. If compost is not available, plant in loose, rich soil that has been amended with a general garden fertilizer. Rake and smooth the soil surface before planting. Carrots grow best when soil temperature are 60° to 70°. Add a layer of mulch around the plants to help keep soil cool. For highest yields sow carrots in a bed and thin 2-3” apart.
