Also question is, when should carrot seeds be planted?
In the spring, sow carrot seeds in fertile, well-worked soil about two weeks before your last frost date. In cool climates, continue planting every three weeks until midsummer. In summer, begin sowing seeds for fall and winter carrots 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost.
Furthermore, how many carrots grow from seed? Obviously, each seed will produce one carrot, so you can always count the seedlings once they have started to grow.
Also Know, should carrot seeds be soaked before planting?
Starting three to four days before you plan to sow them, soak carrot seeds in water for an hour, and then transfer them to a damp paper towel. Fold to enclose the seeds, then put inside an airtight container. Keep at room temperature. Seeds germinate in one to two weeks, depending on the weather.
How many carrot seeds do you plant per hole?
Then put 2-3 seeds in each hole. Gently cover them up and water. A note about planting the right number of seeds–if the seeds are small, you just need to pinch a few between your thumb and forefinger, drop them in, and call it good. I can never get just 3 carrot seeds.
