Growing Instructions:

  1. Planting Time:
    • Cool Season Crop: Carrots thrive in cooler temperatures. Sow seeds in early spring for a summer harvest or in late summer for a fall harvest.
    • Soil Temperature: Optimal germination occurs when soil temperatures are between 50°F and 85°F (10°C and 29°C).
  2. Soil and Location:
    • Soil: Prefers loose, well-draining soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8. Avoid heavy clay soils unless they are amended to improve drainage and texture.
    • Location: Choose a sunny spot that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.
  3. Sowing Depth and Spacing:
    • Sowing Depth: Plant seeds about 1/4 inch (6 mm) deep.
    • Spacing: Space seeds 2 inches (5 cm) apart in rows spaced 12-18 inches (30-45 cm) apart. Thin seedlings to 2-3 inches (5-7.5 cm) apart once they have grown a few inches tall to reduce competition and allow for proper root development.
  4. Watering and Mulching:
    • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Carrots require regular watering, especially during dry spells, to develop sweet and tender roots.
    • Mulching: Apply a thin layer of mulch around the plants to retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and keep the soil cool.
  5. Fertilization:
    • Pre-Planting: Incorporate a balanced fertilizer into the soil before planting.
    • Growing Season: Feed plants with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer or a specific carrot fertilizer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Avoid excessive nitrogen, which can lead to leafy growth at the expense of root development.
  6. Care and Maintenance:
    • Weeding: Keep the area around the carrots weed-free to reduce competition for nutrients and water.
    • Thinning: Thin seedlings as needed to ensure adequate space for root development.
    • Pest and Disease Control: Monitor for pests such as carrot rust flies and aphids. Use organic or chemical controls as necessary and follow integrated pest management practices to minimize damage.


  • Harvest carrots when they reach the desired size and are brightly colored. For the best flavor, harvest in the cooler months when the roots are sweetest.
  • To harvest, gently loosen the soil around the roots and pull the carrots out by their tops.
