Mr Fothergill’s Carrot Romance F1 Seeds
€4.25 “Price excl. VAT: €4.25”
Combines taste and storability
A fast maturing ‘nantes’ type with uniform roots up to 20cm (8in) long that resist cracking and are wonderfully sweet tasting and can be pulled in early summer as ‘baby’ carrots or left to mature for later harvests that store well.
Easily sown direct in the garden. Sow little and often for a continuous crop.
Outdoors: sow thinly, March-June, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Early sowings may benefit cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin by harvesting young carrots evenly from the row, allowing remainder to grow on. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: July-December. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
