carrots in pots
« on: March 30, 2007, 10:19 »
can i grow my carrots from seed in those little arthur bowers pots that rot away in the ground? the plan was to plant the seed in them, grow them on in the warm then plant out the whole pot when they're ready... or would the plant need taking out of the pot due to the tap roots ?. Thanks, John :?  :?
trying to be organic....

Hardly seems worth the expense John unless you are growing very early for competitions - you can plant outdoors very soon, if not now.  But, yes, it would work; the carrot would grow thru' the bottom of the pot.

Thanks both, the only reason I thought about the little pots, is that I have inherited loads in my shed! i thought that they would give the wee carrots the best start!...Have put a load in my propogator today, will see how they go ! :D
