Can anyone advise me on sowing late carrot seeds, so as to avoid carrot root fly? I am particularly thinking of the open ground, where it wouldn't be practical to use fleece.I am aware that later sowings are usually ok, but last year I sowed on June 2nd and they were riddled with tunnels. Would late June be a safer bet, I wonder? I might add my main spring and summer crops I grow in boxes, where I use fleece most successfully.
