How to Thin Carrots (2 Simple Ways of Thinning Carrots)

Want to learn 2 simple ways on how to thin carrots. You will learn 2 simple techniques of thinning carrots that can be done in your container, pot, or garden beds. Thinning carrots is the process of removing some of your carrots plants out. The carrots may be crowded as it is common with them because the seeds are really tiny and sometimes get broadcast too much together. Learning how to thin carrots will ensure that your carrots can grow to full maturity.

Here are the 2 methods of thinning carrots:

1. You can use scissors to snip the carrots stalks at the base. Just be careful not to cut too many carrot plants.

2. You can also transplant your carrot plant. This helps you move them around to fill out spaces in your container, pot or garden. This is especially helpful if you want to move some carrots plants to another container or spot in your garden. We also go over some other general tips in the video that will help to prepare you to thin carrots.

BONUS CARROT TIP:

You may also find that a better way to prevent the need to thin carrot is to use different seeds.  There are some carrots seeds that enable you to plant the seeds with much ease.  They are pelleted carrot seeds that are much larger in size than normal seeds.  These seeds are coated to make them easier to plant the carrots seeds.  This is a way to prevent thinning them out, but they do cost a little more than the regular seeds.  Your typical carrot seeds packets will not contain as much as the normal carrots seeds either.
