Carrot - Nantes
Carrot Variety: Nantes
The well loved carrot that has a nearly perfect cylindrical root with a deep orange colour, and sweet and mild flavour. The leafy fronds are lovely added to salads. For balcony gardens plant in a pot of 40cm in depth and diameter or larger.
For best results, sow carrot seed in situ (directly into the ground or pot) as they do not like to be transplanted. Sow sparingly in drills in well-draining soil free of stones and large clods of earth. Cover with a thin layer of soil and water with a fine rose spray to avoid dislodging the seed. Once your seedlings are 4cm tall, you can start to thin them out to 7cm apart.
