Top Crops for Pots
Make the most of your container gardens and grow vegetables at home. These tips will help you choose the best plants for your climate and containers.
Pot depth: 9–14 inches
Soil temperature: At least 55ºF.
Spacing: Direct-sow seeds 1/2 to 1 inch apart; thin seedlings 1 to 2 inches apart.
Choose a deep pot for carrots with long roots, such as 'Nantes' half-long type (7 inches long). Shallower pots are adequate for shorter carrots such as 'Short 'n Sweet' or round ones like 'Thumbelina.' Don't let the soil dry out.
