An excellent variety for early and successional crops producing uniform blunt-ended cylindrical roots, it grows well in any open position on a light, rich soil which has not been recently manured. Originating from Nantes in France, Nantes 2 is suitable as both second early and as a maincrop. It is virtually coreless with a tender texture, deep orange colour and sweet flavour. With good carrot fly resistance, it matures in 110 days in a warm climate and reaches an average size of 15cm (6in).

Success with root vegetables is very much down to the quality of the soil, so it’s worth taking the time to prepare your patch. Start digging over your soil in late winter or early spring, removing any stones you find and turn the soil until it has a fine, crumbly texture. If your soil is not ideally suitable, you can prepare a large container instead. Do not add manure as this makes the soil too rich for the seeds.
Sowing; Sow from February under cloches or fleece. Sow successionally to July. In mild weather they can be sown as late as August. Carrot seeds are small, but it’s wise to plant them as thinly as possible. This reduces the amount of thinning necessary and potential risk from pests. Mix the seeds with a handful of sharp sand and sow the seeds and sand together. Sand will also aid drainage. Once the seedlings are showing their first rough leaves, thin to 5cm (2 in) between plants.Cultivation:
Use a lightweight fleece over the bed to increase the temperature of the soil while also preventing the carrot flies from laying their eggs. The plants need little other attention during their growth period, although the plants should be kept well watered – too little water results in coarse, woody roots.
Harvest July to October; Start pulling up your carrots as soon as they are big enough to eat. It’s best to harvest them in the evening to avoid attracting carrot fly. Late-sown carrots must be lifted by October to be stored over the winter.
