Easy, Perfect Carrot Rows

Have you ever fumbled with tiny seeds, like those of carrots?

Sue Roman, Produced by Antonio Reis

Handling carrot seeds (or any small seeds for that matter) can be tricky. If you want a simple and effective way to evenly line up tiny seeds, our editor Steve Aitken has a better way to do it.

Items needed:

  • carrot seeds
  • twine


  1. Take a small length of twine
  2. Dip the twine into a bowl of water
  3. Remove the twine from the water, then drag the wet twine through your carrot seeds to pick them up. Water helps seeds stick to the twine.
  4. Take your seed-covered twine and lay it down in your row
  5. The result is well spread-out seeds in a perfectly straight line

Happy growing!
