☀️ A handy tip try and thin the carrots in the evening to try to avoid the carrot root fly. 
 
Carrots need a firm fertile crumbling soil that has not been manure in the last year. Dig the ground in autumn then apply a general fertiliser two weeks before sowing. Keep well watered during dry weather to stop them getting woody. 
Try to thin the carrots during the evening to avoid carrot fly. 
 
Sow from March onwards under cloches to harvest an early crop in June and then successional sow through to August. The seed is extremely small but try to sow as thinly as possible in drills 1cm deep and in rows 15cm apart when the seedlings appear thin to around 7cm apart.
A good variety for growing in containers.
