Possibly too wet when the carrots germinate Milksey. In many places. It has been very wet this year.
wont be carrot fly. Maybe snails/ slugs
I grow pretty good carrots every year despite sowing early. Have to point out....as someone sensibly suggested we should say where we are in the country.....I am in mild SW. Germination has never been a problem
this year I have changed my regime.....always sowed and then fleeced and kept fleeced for most od fhe picking time. This year I have used nematodes for carrot fly instead of fleece. Nematodes used when germinated and again 6 weeks later. Seems to be successful and avoids the slight hassle of lifting the fleece in summer when picking
