Grow Carrots Indoors

November 9, 2018

Want to grow your own carrots? Carrots are generally easy to grow, under the right conditions. Direct seed carrots into the garden or growing container that you'll keep indoors. As with all root crops, carrots do not transplant well and need to develop right where they germinate. Sow seeds ½ 8 to ¼ inch deep. Once seedlings have emerged, thin them out so they are 1 to 2 inches apart.

Grow carrots with 10 to 12 hours of light from grow lamps indoors at cool temperatures to discourage early bolting. If your home is too warm or you do not air-cool a grow tent, a cool garage with grow lights is a good location.
