Planting Tips for our Rainbow Carrot Blend
Sow directly into loose, fertile garden soil with just enough soil covering to anchor the seeds 2-4 weeks before last frost date. For continued production, sow seeds again in 3 week intervals mid-summer. Keep soil moist without allowing it to crust over before the seedlings emerge. Thin the young seedlings to 2″ and fertilize when plants are 4″ tall. Pull roots when carrots are of sufficient size and color to meet your needs.
Leaf lettuce, onions and tomatoes are friends with carrots, so feel free to plant them together. Dill and parsnips should be planted away from your carrots.
