SPACING: Rows can be spaced 15-18 inches apart, or much closer if limited for space. In beds space 2-4 inches apart in all directions.

Ed's Special Advice

Plant at 2 or 3 week intervals for continual harvest. Planting can continue until mid-July. Carrots grow best in a sunny location with rich, light soil and regular thorough waterings. For best results fertilize and cultivate soil prior to planting to a depth of 6 to 8 inches.
