Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Carrots prefer light, deeply tilled soils with plenty of added organic matter, good drainage, a pH range of 6.0-6.6, and regular water. Apply a mulch layer once established to keep roots cool.

Planting & Growing: Seed directly into 75°F soil for quick germination. Mix the small seeds with dry coffee grounds or sand to improve seed distribution. Over planting requires thinning to provide sufficient growing room.

Harvesting & Storage: You may need to loosen soil to pull carrots without breaking off tops. Trim off foliage to extend storage time. Layer roots in a container with damp medium and store in cool, moist conditions. Also good for canning or freezing.

Good seeds

One thing to remember is the ph of soil is lower for carrots. 6.0 to 6.6. Being careful to keep moist and mulched helps plus thinning.

Germinated Quickly

I planted these in direct soil about 9 days ago. I am in Zone 9b. They were the last to germinate of my beets, kale and collards, but...they did germinate and yesterday little green shoots popped up! Yay! I will review again once harvest is ready! I am a first time gardener and all the seeds I have bought from Peaceful Valley have produced. Spring planting was tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash and basil. All very delicious!
