|The roots of spinach need only 6-8 inches of soil; carrots need at least a 12 inch soil depth, depending upon the types you're growing. There are some short varieties of carrots such as Short and Sweet that you can grow in 8-10" of soil. Choose containers 8-12 deep and you can grow both spinach and carrots. Enjoy your veggies!
