i have my seeds for carrots do i sow them now under plastic in my greenhouse or wate .i have an heater in the greenhouse so they wikll be warm enough .x



Carrots need to be sown where they will be grown, so unless you plan to actually grown them in the ground inside your greenhouse not a good idea.

In fact not really a good idea anyway as they will do far better outside. The need a fine, sandy tilth with no compost.

I suppose you could, as I intend to this year, grow carrots in big pots, then you could haul them to wherever seems best. (we have very shallow, stony soil in a lot of our vegetable garden, which has given us mediocre crops in the past, and I'm hoping to not only give them a nice deep run of sandy soil, but plant them in succession, too) I really doubt that even starting these off in a greenhouse, heated or not, would give them much of an advantage.
