Viridis Hortus Carrot Rainbow Blend 400 Vegetable Seeds Description

Cultivate a kaleidoscope of brightly-coloured carrots with these Viridis Hortus Carrot Rainbow Blend 400 Vegetable Seeds. An exquisite blend of five carrot varieties, this seed mixture will provide you with hundreds of delicious and enticing carrots, with just a little time and effort!

Once fully grown, you'll be able to taste each scrumptious variety which includes the Atomic Red, Bambino Orange, Cosmic Purple, Lunar White and Solar Yellow carrot. Mix and match the vibrant colourful baby carrots to create thoughtful vegetable bunches for your neighbours, friends and family.

Suitable to sow from January to July, simply combine the minute carrot seeds with a handful of sharp sand and scatter across fertile soil ensuring they are roughly 1.8-centimetres deep in the soil and spaced at least 23-centimetres apart. Before sowing your seeds, ensure you have a generous area in your veg patch or allotment for them to effectively grow. 

For the best (and most delicious) growing results, keep your carrot seeds happy by ensuring they don't dry out, especially during those hot summer months! Either moisten the seeds and surrounding soil with damp newspaper or make sure your veggie patch gets plenty of rainwater. 

Whether you're an experienced gardener or your fingers have only just started to turn green, keeping your carrots well fed with both water and plant feed encourages optimal results. The ideal harvesting period starts in June and ends in December, but once your carrots look big enough to eat simply pull them of the ground and tuck in!

Manufacturer's description:

Carrot Rainbow Blend Vegetable/Fruit Seeds Mixture of five varieties. A colourful mixture of five varieties of baby carrots. Includes Atomic Red, Bambino Orange, Cosmic Purple, Lunar White and Solar Yellow to create perfect bunches of baby carrots.

Sowing: Sow successionally January-July. Carrot seeds are small, but its wise to plant them as thinly as possible. This reduces the amount of thinning necessary and potential risk from pests. Mix the seeds with a handful of sharp sand and sow the seeds and sand together.

Sand will also aid drainage. Sow seed 1.8cm (¾") deep in drills 23-30cm (9-12") apart. Thin seedlings when the first rough leaves appear, repeating as necessary until plants are 5-7.5cm (2-3") apart. Row 6m (20') or more. Sow thinly to minimise thinning (which can attract Carrot Root Fly). Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly.

Start outdoor sowings January to March sowings can be made under cloches, or in large pots in a cool greenhouse.

Aftercare: Carrot seeds hate drying out and germinate slowly (14 to 21 days) so if your sowing seed in summer, a good way to keep them moist is to lay wet newspaper on top of the damp soil. Once the seedlings are showing their first rough leaves, thin out to 10cm apart which minimises competition and enables the carrots to grow quickly to harvest size.

The plants need little other attention during their growth period, although the plants should be kept well watered too little water results in coarse, woody roots. Surround the carrot bed with a barrier of fleece at least 60cm high to keep low flying carrot root fly from your crop.

Harvesting: June to December. Start pulling up your carrots as soon as they are big enough to eat. It's best to harvest them in the evening to avoid attracting carrot fly. Late-sown carrots must be lifted by October to be stored over the winter. Remember that winter carrots take a little longer to mature than summer carrots.

Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers. Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.

Looking forward to eating these. Very colorful selection. Seeds small - hoping for no carrot fly and plenty of rain too.
