If your soil is heavy, stony or shallow, this is the variety for you!
Early scarlet Horn is a short, stump rooted carrot which does well in places where longer rooted varieties would not succeed.
Great for producing very early crops.
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.
