Carrot Danvers Seeds
Info: The carrot variety `Danvers` produces rich thick, dark orange roots growing to 4cm in diameter at the top, tapering 15-20cm to a pointed end. It is a first-class carrot for all soils, but They grow and keep well in heavier soils, and thrive best when planted between onions. They have a great carrot flavour and are suitable for fresh consumption as well as for steaming, canning and freezing etc.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow from Febuary under cloches or fleece. Can be sown outdoors as late as August. Sow them as thinly as possible, this reduces the amount of thinning necessary. Mix the seeds with a handful of sharp sand and sow the seeds and sand together. Plants should be kept well watered and carrots prefer a sandy, well-drained soil. Too much nitrogen will cause the carrots to grow hairy little roots all up and down the carrot.
