Carrot seed is very small and easier to sow when mixed with
sand. Seeds need constant moisture to germinate. In hotter areas, water newly sowed
seeds and cover with boards to maintain moisture and cooler soil temperatures.
Check weekly for new shoots. Beware, after germination early seedlings look
like grass. Carrots need deep, well-watered soil, high in organic matter. Heavy
clay or stony soil can create forked and twisted carrots.
