carrot 'Mixed'

carrot or Daucus carota mixed

approx 500 seeds £2.99
  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well drained and light

    These carrots come in shades of cream, yellow, orange, red, magenta and purple, so they are a great way to jazz up the dinner plate or salad bowl. Because they are so colourful (and because they are crunchy and have a good flavour), they seem to be particularly popular with children.

  • Growing Instructions: Sow sparingly direct into shallow drills and cover lightly with soil. Protect early and late sowings with cloches. Thin seedlings gradually until they are 5cm apart, watering beforehand to avoid disturbing nearby roots: larger thinnings can be eaten raw as baby carrots. Do not grow carrots in freshly-manured ground as this can cause them to fork.

  • Sow: March-May

  • Harvest: June to September

  • Approximate quantity: 500 seeds
