Loved the straw and so did the rabbit! The grape plants were in perfect condition. This experience, from purchase to delivery was an absolute pleasure. WILL BE RETURNING. :)

You can't sow and grow carrots all the year round - or not from one variety at least! And that is why we have carefully blended Early's, Second Early's, Maincrops, Late's and Over-Wintering varieties to produce this true all year round blend; we used to call this our 365 Day Carrot Mixture.

These can be sown pretty much anytime of the year and will produce a crop. For those wanting to buy just 'one' packet of carrot seed but produce carrots throughout the year these are perfect.

  • Sow February - April (under protection) or April to August outside in the open.
  • Or sow October - early December (under protection) for young Easter carrots.
  • Sow thinly in rows 12" (30 cm) apart. Sow in " (1 cm) deep drills.
  • Thin out to 2"-3" (5 - 7.5 cm) apart when large enough to handle - make sure you eat the thinnings!
  • Top Tips
  • A useful tip to deter carrot fly is when you thin or hoe your carrots water the rows with our BioFriend Plant-Defence - this will keep the fly away! And always remember to take the thinnings away - thinnings left on the ground attract carrot fly.
  • As an alternative, always keep plants covered with insect netting.
  • Carrots left in the open ground or stored in clamp beds should be strawed over to protect from frost.
