Aimers Organic Seed - Carrot "Chantenay" (Organic)
Orange-scarlet roots are smooth, even shaped and free from eyes. These meaty carrots consistently grow to 15 cm (6") in length and 2.5 cm (1") thick. A garden staple that is a good choice for soils that tend to be heavier.
|How To Grow||850 seeds/gram Carrots will grow well in any open, well cultivated, deep garden soil. As the seed is quite small, mix it with some sand when sowing. Once soil temperature rises above 7.5 C (45 F), sow seed about 7-15 mm (1/4-1/2") deep in rows spaced 45-60 cm (18- 24") apart. Stagger several sowings over the next few weeks. Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the 3 week germination period. Thin the seedlings during the early stages of growth until they are 5 cm (2") apart. Keep the plants evenly watered, weed free and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Harvest any time after the carrot roots develop good colour.|
