Sowing Months Harvest Months

Water well to encourage germination. Once germinated, carrots should be watered only when necessary to keep the soil moist as excessive water may encourage leaf growth instead of roots. During growth, the carrot roots may be earthed up to prevent green crowns developing.


Cover later carrot sowings with fleece or fine netting, and remove all thinnings from the site to minimise carrot fly infestation. Carrots can be harvested from July to December depending on their sowing date. Early varieties may be lifted when required from 9 weeks onwards, while maincrops can be harvested after 11 weeks from their sowing date. Pull a single carrot first to assess the size of the roots. If the soil is dry, lifting carrots can be made easier by watering beforehand. Roots can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 4 months.

1. Prepare the soil well by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones.
2.Make 1cm (1/2in) drills in the soil spaced 30cm (12in) apart.
3. Separate the seed tapes at the perforation and if necessary cut to the desired length.
4.Water the open drill so that the seed tape sticks to the soil well.
5. Place the seed tape in the seed drill, along each row
6. Cover the seed tapes and gently firm the soil down using the back of a rake.
7.Water regularly and keep moist but not over wet.
8. Harvest roots through the autumn. Loosen the soil around the roots with a fork before lifting to avoid damaging.
