Growing Carrot

Rowan: Jareds' comment is a good idea to get the variety, but do NOT buy carrot seedlings, or any root crop seedlings. It is almost impossible to get them from the tray to the ground without damaging the root. They will never be as good as seed sown. Alison: full sun? not really, I have mine in and they get about 6 hours/day and are doing fine. Watering is the tip. many light waterings (2-3 times /day) until the seedlings are about 3-5cm tall. plant radishes at the same time to get an extra crop and to break the soil crust.
