How to grow carrots in containers – 3 easy tips

1. Choose the best container

It may go without saying but if you don’t have the right container, you won’t have the right conditions for growing carrots.

According to garden specialists Envii, carrots can be grown in most container shapes ranging between six to 15 inches in depth.

Also, make sure to check the specific depth requirements depending on the variety of carrots you have chosen to grow.

Envii explains: “Most carrot varieties require a minimum container depth of 12 inches, with 1.5 to 2 cm of spacing available between seedlings and the container edge.

“Good spacing and depth will allow carrots to grow well and fully develop.”

Make sure you drill holes in the base of your container to allow for drainage and prevent moisture build-up.
