When to Plant Carrot Seeds
Start your seeds in late Spring 3-5 weeks before your last frost.
Where to Plant Carrot Seeds
Carrots prefer full sun but can tolerate some shade. Seeds will grow best in deep, loose, and well-drained soil. It is best to sow seeds directly into the garden rather than starting indoors and later transplanting.
How to Plant Carrot Seeds
Plant your seeds 2 inches apart and Â¼ inch deep. When thinning, cut plants down. Donâ€™t pull up the excess carrots or it may damage root systems of neighboring carrots.
How to Harvest Carrots
When carrots have reached maturity, simply pull them up by the tops. *Carrots do best in sandy, loose soil. If your carrots are too short and ball-like, it means that the soil wasnâ€™t loose enough to push through. Carrots taste better after going through one or more frosts, so donâ€™t worry if it freezes when they are in the ground!
