How To Grow Autumn King Carrot From Seed: Spread the seed evenly and thinly into shallow drills that are 20cm apart. Cover the seed with about 2cm of fine soil. When the seedlings start to grow, thin them to leave a space of about 5cm between each plant. Try and keep in between the plants free from weeds. 

Before sowing, it is best to work the soil you are going to sow your carrots in, and make it as fine as possible to a good depth. As carrots grow downwards, if the soil is fine, they will tend to grow long and straight.

Sow successionally throughout the year to ensure a consistent supply.
