Q.Transplanting or movnig snap peas and carrots

Zone 02162 | samsacks added on June 14, 2017 | Answered

I’m new to gardening and ended up planting my sugar snap peas on the west of my garden. My carrots are on the north side. I would need to swap my peas and carrots. I’ve heard that neither transplant well. I get barely enough sunlight in my garden as is. Suggestions?

Carrots and most root vegetables do not transplant well. If they survive you usually don't end up with a usable crop. The peas can be transplanted if they are still small, and you move them with the majority of their root ball intact. You need to plant at the same depth as their prior location and similar soil is helpful. If they were in the shade than I would suggest moving them on an overcast day. Because peas germinate quickly you may just consider sowing a new lot. I would suggest sowing new carrots as well. Enjoy your garden.
