Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water often.

The USDA Hardiness Zones typically associated with Parisienne are Zone 3 and Zone 11. Ensure your soil is loamy and sandy and has a ph of between 6.0 and 6.5 as Carrot is a weakly acidic soil loving plant.

Growing Parisienne from seed

Early sowings can be made 2-3 weeks before spring’s last frost date. The tiny seeds should be surface-sown and not covered, or covered only minimally, and kept uniformly moist until seedlings are strong. May be sown throughout spring and summer at 2-3 week intervals, until about a month before first frost in autumn. Deep mellow, well-worked soil suits long types: half-longs and round types are better bets in heavier soils.

Ensure a distance of 0.39 inches (1.0 cm) between seeds when sowing - look to sow at a depth of approximately 0.23 inches (0.6 cm). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 16°C / 61°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Parisienne about 21 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Parisienne

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Parisienne is a very hardy plant.
