- Add the carrot seeds in the soil about two weeks before the last frost if you live in an area where there is a cool weather. If you live in a warm area you should plant the seeds in February because the weather is warm enough.

- The seeds should not be planted too deep but they should be covered with a thin layer of compost.
- Make some order on your site and remove all the plants that are too small and leave the big ones which will grow into big carrots. They should be about 4 inches part one from the other.
- Add compost so that you do not have weeds and spray them with a special tea which will help them fight any disease that can appear.
