Raised beds and pots

Make sure your soil is light and sandy for carrots generally, it makes it easier for roots to grow big. They don't much like freshly manured soil either, growing in raised beds should decrease the risk of carrot fly as they fly at ground level. My carrot beds this year are about two foot off ground level but I'm also using them as a wind break on an exposed allotment site. Autumn King have always given me a good crop sewn directly to where you want to grow them.

I've used them for starting off lavender cuttings, can't really think of any other uses though.

Afternoon all, I see I got a mention on a previous page

Hope I don't get blamed for any leggy seedlings though. I think the sun must have stayed in the north all day, still a bit cold and very cloudy all day here. Getting excited as I'm starting on the seeds tomorrow, first up is peas and sweet peas.

Excellent, cheers Verdun. I hadn't known there was a potential problem until I read this thread, so thanks for that too.

Sorry I'm a bit late with my question, is the pea moth a common problem and do you just cover at flowering time to stop them? I'm also going to be growing Hurst Greenshaft but it's the first time for me.

How on earth did you get one in the first place then?

I'd do a chapter on procrastination, but I'm not sure I'd find the time.

Chica I wouldn't worry too much, just pop behind your garden and dig some new seedlings up when they're big enough. They'll probably have self seeded in to the same spot.

They probably have a lot of plants suitable for hot air conditions.

Thanks for the tip about Puffin, that's sorted it out.
