Direct Seeding Vegetable Crops

January 12, 2019

Some seeds, such as lettuce, and root crops such as beets, can be direct seeded into their final container. Root crops, such as beets, do not transplant well and can be stunted if you try to grow them in a small pot and then move them to the garden.

Just make sure to manage moisture and soil doesn’t stay too soggy in the container if you sow seeds directly into pots.
