Carrots are easily grown in any decent garden soil, but deep loams with a high organic matter will grow the smoothest and straightest roots. Highly nutritious, a single medium carrot supplies the daily requirement of Vitamin A. Growing Tips: Sow seed 0.5 to 1 cm (1/4-1/2”) deep as early as the ground can be worked with about 30 seeds planted per foot. Once sprouted, thin seedlings to 3-5cm (1-2”) apart, supply adequate moisture and keep the earth well cultivated to prevent weeds. Cover exposed shoulders with soil to prevent greening.
