How to grow:
Prepare the soil 3 weeks before the last expected spring frost or when, the soil temperature reaches 45 degrees F. These Lunar White carrot seeds for sale appreciate deeply worked, loose soil in order to reach their full length. Build up a raised mound in the row, about 8″ wide; sow the seeds on it, and cover them with 1/4″ very loose soil. Keep the soil moist, but do not allow the area above the seeds to become hard – this may prevent the seeds from germinating. In cooler climates, sow more seeds every 3-6 weeks for a continuous crop. Warmer climates may be restricted to spring and fall crops since carrots cannot tolerate an excess of heat. When the seedlings reach 2″ high, gently thin them to 2-4″ apart, depending on desired carrot size. The farther apart they are, the bigger they will grow. Do not allow the soil to dry out. When the tops of the carrots begin to emerge from the soil, cover them with mulch to keep them tender. Keep weeds under control to prevent the young carrots from being stunted. For companion planting benefits, plant the Lunar White carrot seeds for sale with aromatic herbs or onions; this will repel the carrot fly and its maggots.
