Plant seeds directly in the garden in early spring starting about 2 weeks before average last frost date. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-85 degrees. Thin seedlings when they are about 1" high. Successive sowings can be made every two to three weeks. Do not plant if crop will mature in the heat of summer as it may result in poor quality carrots. Planting can resume late summer for a fall harvest. Cut off all but 1" off tops before storing. Even at optimum temperature carrot seed can take up to 18 days to germinate.
