How To Grow Mixed Colour Carrots From Seed: Carrots do best in a deep, rich, fine soil. First sowings can be done from March onwards, undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel for an earlier crop. Seeds can be sown directly outdoors from May onwards. These varieties are best planted as early as possible, as they are slow growers. 

When sowing; sprinkle the seed evenly into shallow drills and cover with fine soil. Thin the seedlings as they grow to leave a distance of 5 to 6cm. Be sure to keep the plot free from weeds.

Very slow to germinate, Plenty weeds coming through the freshly turned soil long before any carrot making it difficult to find the carrots.
