Hi willo, you'll have to be quick with buying your tattles as a lot of garden centres stop selling about now. There were only a few left in the garden centre I went to today. Suggest main crop and get them in anytime from now or over the next couple of weeks. Try and get some that have chitted. Put them in about a hand widths deep and cover with a little soil. As the see the green foliage come through cover with more soil to encourage more growth.
You can sow carrot seeds direct if it's warm where you are. Suggest planting some onion or garlic alongside to discourage carrot fly, if you can get hold of any as quite late to plant onion and garlic now....unless you try spring onion by seed.
I'm sure there are lots of tips to add, but these are the basics that I follow and always have a bumper crop of both. Good luck!
