Why won't my Autumn King 2 carrot seeds germinate? Carrots usually take up to 21 days to germinate but can take even longer if the temperature of your soil is too low. The soil needs to be kept moist during the germination process to ensure success.
Can you soak carrot seeds before planting? Although Autumn King 2 carrot seeds tend to be slow germinating, you can speed up the process by soaking your seeds in water for an hour and transfering to a damp paper towel.
Can you grow Autumn King 2 carrots in seed module trays? Sowing your Autumn King 2 carrots into modules so you can transplant later is possible, make sure you plant out when the seedlings are still small. If you leave the transplanting process too long the roots can already have reached the bottom of their pots, which can cause forked roots for your vegetable seeds in the future.
