BOTANICAL NAME: Daucus carota
Sow seed 3" apart or broadcast carefully in deep, well prepared bed for long, well shaped roots. Avoid fresh or green manure or excess nitrogen which causes hairy, forked roots. Cover the seed lightly with soil. Do not allow the soil to dry out or crust; it helps to put shadecloth or burlap over the bed, checking daily until seedlings come up and then remove the covering. Germination can be slow; presoaking in warm water can help.
