Carrot James Scarlet Intermediate Seeds
- Productive, large-rooted type
- A very reliable maincrop with good colour and flavour.
- Traditional favourite.
- Easily sown direct in the garden.
- Sow little and often for a continuous crop
Outdoors: sow thinly, March-July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows.
Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly from the row, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established.
Harvest: June-November. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
