Nantes 2 Carrot Seeds
[110 days] An early summer carrot originating from Nantes, France, the Nantes 2 carrot can be ready to harvest as early as June. The roots are deep orange, uniform and blunt-ended with a tender texture and virtually no core. They grow to about 15cm (6") long. Easy to grow, this sweet-tasting carrot is a must for any carrot-loving gardener. Freezes well, too.
Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").
Why won't my Nantes 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 Nantes 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 Nantes 2 carrots in seed module trays? Sowing your 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.
