How to Grow
1. Plant Little Finger carrot seeds when the soil dries in spring. These frost-hardy vegetables do best in temperatures between 60 and 70 degrees F, and germinate at 40 degrees F.

2. Put Little Finger carrots in quick-draining parts of the garden where they get full sun for four to six hours every day. Carrots rot in standing water or muddy soil. Set out a 5- to 10-square-foot plot for carrot planting.

3. Dig into the top 6-inch layer of soil to loosen it. Carrots do best in loose, moist and well-drained soil, and grow stunted and crooked in tight or rocky soil. Add 3 inches of organic compost and 1-2-2 or 5-10-10 fertilizer to build a rich, nutritious foundation.

4. Plant Little Finger carrot seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep at 1 to 2 inches in the row. Leave 14 to 18 inches between multiple rows. Expect germination in 10 to 18 days.

5. Water the Little Finger seeds with 2 inches of water every week. Lay 2 inches of organic mulch on the soil between plantings and in the rows to keep soil moist during growth.

6. Thin seedlings to every 2 inches in the row when they sprout, to give each carrot room to grow.
