    Create trenches in your soil of about 2cm deep
    Space the trenches about 6inches apart
    You can also sow direct to containers or pots that are at least 9inches deep for a straighter crop
    Take your carrot seeds and drop one every 2cm or so
    The more accurate you are with the sowing, the less thinning out you’ll need to do
    Rake fine soil over the trenches to cover the seeds and pat down gently
    The less tampering that happens during the carrot growth cycle, the less likely you are to attract carrot root fly
    Do not over-care or water the plants, so that the roots grown deep in search of nutrients
