Early Spring Sowing Early Nantes 2 Carrot Seeds Under Glass

For early carrot crops, sow under glass or cloches in March. After March, sow outdoors from April to July.

Direct Sow Seeds

Directly sow carrot seeds thinly in March (under glass) April to June at a depth of 1 cm (0.5") in drills 30 cm (12") apart. Germination takes 10 to 20 days.


When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 5 cm (2") apart. Where space is limited, growing carrots in containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.

When Can I Harvest Early Nantes 2 Carrots?

Early Nantes 2 can be lifted when required from 9 weeks onwards.

Growing & Harvesting Carrots More Information

Water well to encourage germination. Once germinated, carrots should be watered only when necessary to keep the soil moist as excessive water may encourage leaf growth instead of roots. During growth, the carrot roots may be earthed up to prevent green crowns developing.


Cover later carrot sowings with fleece or fine netting, and remove all thinnings from the site to minimise carrot fly infestation. Maincrop carrots can be harvested from 12 weeks after their sowing date. Pull a single carrot first to assess the size of the roots.


Garden tip: If the soil is dry when lifting carrots, it can be made easier by watering the ground beforehand. Roots can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 4 months.
