Enjoying fresh home-grown carrots is possible even if you don't plant a garden. Growing vegetables in containers provides the benefits of a garden at the doorstep. Carrots grow well in containers because they are a root vegetable. They do not climb, vine or bush, so they need no any extra attention other than proper watering. Growing carrots in a container can be less of a hassle than doing so conventionally because there are no weeds to pull.
Fill a container with potting soil and organic fertilizer such as peat moss or green manure. Blend 1 cup of fertilizer into 2 gallons of soil.
Plant the carrot seeds according to the package directions.
Water the seeds until the potting soil is moist, only to settle the new seeds. Position the container in a sunny location.
