If you mean growing the greens from the part you cut off the top of the carrot; you simply put the end (leave about 3/4 inch of carrot) cut side down in about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water, and place on a sunny windowsill. Some grow better than others--when you check the bag of carrots in the grocery store, sometimes you can see some ends with the tiniest sprouts on them--choose those! Make sure they don't dry out, and when you add water, pour the old out once in a while, so it doesn't get slimy.

I used to grow these all the time for my pet birds--who LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the greens!
