How to Save Seeds
Carrots will cross pollinate with other carrots or Queen Anne's Lace which is a common weed found in some parts of the country. You'll want to check your area to see whether or not Queen Anne's Lace is grown in your area. If so make sure your carrots are separated by at least ¼ of a mile from Queen Anne's as well as other carrot varieties. Overwinter by mulching and them allow them to seed in spring. Let umbels fully dry and ripen before collecting seeds.
