Flyaway is consistently among our top selling carrots, your crop should produce broad, stump ended roots with a smooth skin and excellent colour and be ready for pulling from approximately 12-18 weeks. Flyaway is much less attractive to carrot flies and is a very good choice if you have had problems in the past. Price for 150 seeds
SOW: at no more than 10mm deep from March to early July, for early sowings warm the soil with the cloches before sowing or wait for warmer weather. Remember to dig the soil thoroughly. Sow sparingly to avoid the need for too much thinning.
GROW: allow 12-18 weeks before pulling. Keep moist and weed free – they don’t like the competition.
EAT: enjoy the flavour when pulled fresh from the garden. Can be stored in a poly bag in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. To Freeze - slice or dice larger carrots, freeze baby carrots whole, blanch for 3 minutes, plunge in cold water, drain and pack into convenient sized potions.
