How to Grow Imperator Carrot From Seed

# 1 | Prepare your soil 3-weeks before the last expected spring frost or when the soil temperature reaches 45 degrees F.

# 2 | Because Imperator carrots grow long and slender they appreciate deeply worked, loose soil. Deeply worked soil will help your imperator carrots reach their full length. Build up a raised mound in a row about 8" wide; sow your carrot seeds on it, and cover them with 1/4" very loose soil.

# 3 | Keep the soil moist, but do not allow the area above the seeds to become hard - this may prevent your imperator carrot seeds from germinating. In cooler climates, you can sow more imperator carrot seeds every 3-6 weeks for a continuous crop.

#4 | Imperator seedlings should emerge in 10-17 days.
