Nantes Carrot Seeds
A lovely early carrot, Nantes produces blunt-ended roots with a small core. This variety is ideal for growing in pots or planters, making it perfect for gardeners with limited space. It can be harvested as a baby carrot or allowed to grow fully, either way it produces sweet roots with good colour.
Number of seeds per pack: 400
- Sow thinly outdoors in pre-watered rows 1cm (1/2in) deep and 25cm (10in) apart. Cover lightly with compost, firm down and keep moist. Early Feb-Mar sowings will need covering with fleece to provide warmth.
- Seeds should germinate in 14-21 days. Keep free of weeds and water consistently to prevent roots from splitting.
- Harvest young carrots alternately and allow remaining roots to develop to full size.
- Plants may need to be covered with netting or fleece to protect from carrot fly.
Sow outdoors: February - July
This is a biennial - the roots will be ready to harvest in the year of planting, while any plants left in the ground will produce seed in the second year.
