Now that you have picked the variety of carrot that you are planning to plant in your vegetable garden. There are two different ways of planting the seeds. They can be planted in rows by gently sprinkling the seeds in lines. Or the seeds can be broadcasted, which means gently sprinkled over a larger area – not in rows but more in groupings. Depending on the size of your vegetable garden, space may be limited so either method is completely reasonable. If planting multiple rows of carrots, give at least 3 inches of spacing between each row or whatever your seed packet calls for.
After sprinkling your carrot seeds in rows or grouping, take a handful of potting soil and lightly put a ½” of soil over the seeds. I prefer using potting soil instead of garden soil because it is lighter in weight. This cover will help the seeds to stay where planted and keep birds from eating them.
