in Fruit & veg
Hi, my first time growing carrots, and as I have limited space generally I am doing quite a few veg in boxes on my shed roof. If I plant carrots up there, do you think I could avoid a carrot fly barrier? Monty said they dont fly much higher than 30 or 40 cm so a barrier higher than that will be sufficient to deter them. Can I risk the seedlings up at 6 foot unprotected? Thanks
