Carrot 'Nantes 5' is an ideal carrot for small garden – growing in a pot. It is sweet and tasty and quick to crop

Cultivate the soil at a depth of at least 8 inches. Remove weeds with your hands and a garden hoe, and rake out lumps and rocks that may obstruct root growth. Work a 2-inch layer of compost into the soil. Apply a 10-10-10 fertilizer according to package instructions.
Broadcast the seeds over the soil surface at a frequency of three seeds per inch. Sprinkle a 1/4-inch layer of soil over the seeds. Tamp the soil so that it's firm over the seeds, and lightly water them in. Aim to keep the soil evenly moist -- not soggy -- as the plants grow. Space the rows 12 inches apart. Expect germination in about two weeks.
Thin the seedlings to 2 inches apart when they have three true leaves or are at least 1 inch tall. Use scissors to remove the weak, small seedlings by cutting them at soil level.
Side-dress the plants with a 20-0-0 fertilizer about six weeks after germination. Water the soil after fertilizing so that the feed can dissolve and get to the roots.
Water the plants with a moderate amount of water throughout the growing season. Don't allow the soil to dry completely, because this may cause the roots to crack. Spread a 2-inch layer of seed-free straw over the soil around the plants to help promote soil moisture retention and to suppress weeds. Keep the straw mulch about 1 inch away from the plants.
