    I never say a seed won't grow as you won't know until you sow them. You could do a germination test first if you have doubts.

    Personally I wouldn't sow carrot seeds outside now - there's too much of a risk of cold and snow, and I worry the seeds would rot before they germinate.

    I wouldn't sow in a tray and transplant outside later either - I've not had any success with that in the past.
