This is a record of how long this particular set of seeds took to germinate and how they looked at various stages from first appearance to the development of the first set of true leaves and beyond. I hope this will prove useful.

Variety:Touchon (RSC)
Sown direct: 30th Match 2014
First Seedling: 19th April 2014 (approx)
Germination: 20 days
Germination ratio: N/A

The is described as being ‘Sweet, good for winter storage‘ and so I am looking forward to tasting these carrots in due course.

Carrot Touchon direct sown 17th May: 1 month on and these seedlings are growing nicely and now stand at about 2 inches tall.
