I grow my carrots in a 40 gallon drum which is high enough to stop the carrot fly reaching them. Cut big holes in the bottom of the drum, put in a layer of big stones, then smaller, and finally gravel to a depth of about 10 inches. cover with double layer of old fleece (to stop the soil washing out then fill with mixture of soil and compost to within 2 inches of top. sow seeds and sprinkle on compost to cover. cover with fleece secured with string tied round drum, to keep warm till germinated.
