Q.Carrot Propagation

Anonymous added on December 27, 2010 | Answered

How do you propagate carrots? Are they propagated from seeds or top cuttings? Besides buying the seeds, can we get the seeds from our planted carrot plants or from the carrot flower?

You can get the seeds from your carrot after it seeds out. If it is a hybrid then you really don't know what you will get.
For fun you can cut the top off a carrot, place it in a small bowl lined with pebbles add water to just cover the pebbles. The top will sprout greenery and roots, however it will take a long time to grow a carrot from this. Best is to start from seeds.
