Hi, 

As well as the other advice try these ideas too.I plant onions or garlic along side my carrots and that seems to help as the flies don’t like the smell.  I also use carrot seeds tapes which help avoid the thinning out process as they are already well spaced. Good luck

how can I avoid carrot fly on my allotment

I’ve grown carrots for a few years now and carrot fly is a real problem on the allotment. I’ve been using fleece for the last few seasons, but last summer the little critters (not what they’re called when the carrots are lifted 🙂 ) still managed to attack the roots.

I rotate the crops every season, but was wondering if anyone has any tips that work?

Thanks
