Monty Don demonstrates two ways to sow carrots – in rows and by broadcast sowing. In this clip from Gardeners’ World, he sows his last carrots of the summer, using the varieties ‘Nantes 2’ and ‘Oxenhall’. When sown in June, these will be ready to harvest in September or October. He shows you how to prepare the soil and sow thinly, then how to protect your crop from carrot rootfly infestations.
