As thinning is supposed to attract carrot fly, does growing carrots by the crowbar method , with minimal thinning , result in less damage  by fly?

I got excited  this year by my Roscoea  cautleoides Kew Beauty.   It produced seed for the first time, and while googling for methods to sow it, I got excited by "Red Ghurka". At the nursery , they also had some R.purpurea hybrids which were huge compared to the old R.purpurea and humeana I had. So I had to have some. Then I had to make a special bed for them.

Hellebores, I have got 6 in the last few months, and plan a few more.

Phlox, I want some more colours.

 I did have a pulmonaria fetish a few years ago,marjorie fish seems to dominate long therm though.
