CULTURE: Because of tap root, it is advisable to avoid starting carrots in flats for transplanting. Plant seeds after soil reaches 55° F.
SOIL: Carrots do best in rich, un-compacted soil high in phosphorus and potassium and moderate levels of nitrogen.
SEED PRODUCTION: Store best roots for replanting following year or leave in the garden and mulch heavily. Flowering tops are quite large so leave at least 2′ spacing between carrots.
