You’ll want to choose a south or west-facing location around your home to put your pots.
There are limitless options when it comes to carrot varieties, but for container planting, you’ll want to focus on those types that tend to be smaller and rounder.
Typically, you’ll want a container that is about twice as deep as the mature size of your carrot variety.
Because carrots are a cool-season plant, you’ll want to get your seeds in the soil before the last freeze so they will germinate just as spring takes over.
This is important for the health of your plants since overcrowding reduces airflow and breeds disease, and also to assure you get plenty of well-structured carrots come harvest time.
