Talkback: 10 ways to deter carrot root fly

Posted: 08/01/2016 at 12:15

Hotspur....fleece is useless if carrot fly is already in your soil.  Nematodes then fleece. It will work.  Onions and carrots side by side is how I do it.    Parsley too near onions.

Alternatives to Buxus hedge?

Anyone done any gardening today?
