How To Thin: Dragon Carrots

To give Dragon Carrots enough room to grow, they require "thinning" 2 weeks after planting when the seedlings are about an inch tall. These seedlings can be eaten, or composted.

How to thin Dragon Carrots:

  1. First, water the Seedsheet to saturate the soil and avoid damaging the roots.  
  2. Second, select the healthiest plants and gently pull out the extras with your thumb and pointer finger. 
  3. Thin Dragon Carrots to 2-plants so they have enough room to grow. 
  4. Pat down the soil around the remaining plants. 
  5. The extra seedlings are edible! Compost these, or enjoy as a snack. 
  6. Watch the remaining two plants grow large and lush leaves.

Hi Kal! Thanks for the question! Yes, the extra carrots that you thinned can be transplanted for extra bonus carrot plants! Enjoy your carrot bounty!
