Tips for Planting Carrot Seed

It is important that carrot seeds are planted in a deeply worked soil that drains well. Raised beds are the choice of many as the soil is generally loose and stone-free. The reason this vegetable seed needs such well worked soil is because of the taproot. If it meets an obstacle, such as a rock or clay soil, it will either quit growing or branch off.

You should plant carrot seeds about two weeks before the last expected frost. When planting, you should try to place them a half inch apart. You can make successive plantings every three weeks thru midsummer.
