Carrot Chanteny Red Cored 2

Price per Unit : € 1.99

One of the most reliable of carrots, which can be cropped for almost five months of the year. The medium size stump roots are evenly shaped and of fine colour. They also store well if cleaned and packed in boxes of dry sand.

Sowing carrots

Carrots don’t do well when transplanted so are best sown in situ. Temperatures should be above 5°C (41°F) but germinate faster in temperatures above 10°C (50°F).

Use a cloche or horticultural fleece to warm up soil beforehand. Sow seeds thinly in dills 15cm (6in) apart and 1cm (0.5in) deep. Thin out during the evening to 5 to 8cm (2 to 3in) apart.

Erect a 60cm (24in) fleece fence around your patch to protect crop from carrot root fly. It’s important to weed regularly when plants are young.

Hand weed to avoid root damage from hoes. Once a canopy has been formed weeds should become suppressed. Keep soil moisture consistent as the roots could split if sporadically overwatered.
