Dirt Goddess Super Seeds are fortified with Mycorrhizae, Beneficial Bacteria & Trichoderma for Superior Growth & Vigor. Organically!
Mycorrhizae forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of 95% of the worlds plants and it’s believed that plants were able to evolve onto land due to this symbiosis.
Colonization by mycorrhizae can provide multiple functions: increased nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, resistance to pathogens, increased vigor and yield.
It has been shown that the presence of Mycorrhizae can increase a plant’s absorption of certain nutrients which it cannot uptake on its own.
In most gardens and agricultural settings the mycorrhizae is destroyed by killing, the overuse of chemical fertilizers, and fungicides. The mycorrhizae must be re-added to the soil in order to benefit the plant.
Mycorrhizae is naturally 100% organic.

Story of this Seed:
Thanks and Happy Growing!
Carrots grow best in well prepared, deeply worked, loose soil. Direct seed Carrots in full sun or part shade (in hot climates), from early spring-summer , ¼ - ½" deep, approx. 4 seeds per inch, in rows 12-16" apart.
Germination occurs in 6-21 days at temperatures of 50-75° F.
Thin the plants to 1-3" apart. To prevent green shoulders you can hill 1-2" of soil around plants when 7-10 leaves have formed. A good mulch of organic material (such as grass clippings) is very beneficial once carrots are established.
Harvest when Heirloom / Open Pollinated carrots have brightened in color, when color has deepened.
