Mr Fothergill’s Carrot Royal Chantenay 3 Seeds
€2.90 “Price excl. VAT: €2.90”
Distinctly sweet tasting and succulent, short conical roots that can be used whole as ‘baby’ carrot or left to mature. Fast growing and ideal for containers and shallow, stony ground.
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: June-October. Roots can be lifted in autumn. Remove soil and store in dry sand.
