Carrots can be planted most the year round, but cope as young seedlings with the extreme hot summers. Carrot seedlings don't transplant well and are best sown directly in to the veggie patch. Keep moist until seeds germinate. Once seedlinga are around 4-5cm in height thin them out. Carrots store well in the soil, so don't be afraid to sow more than you need.
