  5. Hi Anon,
    We are due to sow carrots soon and so will do a posting - in short we cover our carrots with environmesh - we did use fleece for a while which was also effective but fleece doesn't last as long.
    See website as there is a bit here.

  7. Just read about companion planting with onions. Apparently field trials have been carried out on this and it did have a 'small' effect but only if 4 rows of onions were sown to every row of carrots! And only whilst the onions are making leafy growth. Have you had more success than that Happy?
