Days to Maturity:
When sowing Scarlet Nantes Carrot seeds, sow 4 seeds per inch in a row and when seedlings are 2" high, thin seedlings to 3" apart.
Best Container Size:
In full sun and well-drained soil, sow 4 seeds per inch in the row. Cover the seeds firmly with soil. When the plants are 2 inches tall, thin to 3 inches apart in the row. For fresh carrots all season, plant every 3 weeks until 75 days before the first fall frost.
Too much water can cause carrots to crack. They should be kept weeded (a clean mulch can reduce this job). Also, lightly place soil over exposed roots to prevent cracking.
