I like that idea Pentillie and will give it a try. I've had resonable results growing alternate rows of carrots and onions in the past with the view that the smell of onions masks the carrots smell. I will be harvesting the last of my leeks over the next few weeks and the carrot seeds are just germinating, so the timing is rather good.
I've been growing carrots in 60cm high raised beds for the past 2-3 years with no fly damage at all but they got vine weevil last year so I'm trying them back in the ground.
