Black Nebula Carrot
Germination: 6-14 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-85 degrees F. The cooler the soil the longer it takes for germination, up to 3 weeks.
Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep
Outside Sowing: Starting 3 weeks before last frost into mid-summer. Sow lightly, thin to 1-3” apart. The larger the carrot variety the more space needed between them. The soil moisture should be maintained regularly until germination, letting soil dry out during this period may result in lower germination.
Tips: Using a row cover helps to maintain moisture for germination. Carrots prefer a loose soil, free of rubble. Use the shorter varieties for heavy soils. Keep well weeded and cover any exposed carrot with soil or mulch to prevent greening. An excess of nitrogen in the soil cause to roots to become hairy.
