  • Water the sown seed bed immediately by a light shower with a watering can.

Caring

  • At this point you will notice tiny seedlings begin to grow.
  • Baby seedlings will be visible in 10-15 days.
  • Keep only one seedling per hole. Cut off the smaller seedling.
  • Carrot plants require full sunlight (6-8 hours) in winter, so place your containers accordingly. Make sure your raised bed receives sufficient sunlight.
  • Water your container/raised bed every day. Use a watering can to ensure a light shower. Outdoors, you can use sprinklers to water your carrot plant.
  • Look for the early signs fungal infection/ insect infestation. If you notice any symptoms, spray appropriate medicines immediately.
  • Avoid adding nitrogen fertilizers in the later stages of plant growth for better root formation.
  • About 100 - 120 days after sowing seeds, your carrots will be ready for harvest.
  • Harvest your carrots by uprooting. You need to uproot them from the soil along with the whole plant.

Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep
