Is it too late to plant carrots?

I'm looking at planting an early Nantes variety, Touchon carrots- they take about 65 days. If I plant them in around a week or by the beginning of August, can I expect a harvest by October?

    Depends on the weather, outside or in a GH or tunnel and your location,  I'd say it is certainly possible.
    If you have the seeds, there is only one way to find out  :)

    Yeah, I'm up in Manchester, although near the centre so it does tend to be quite mild and our first frost is usually mid-late October, although its been 20C on Halloween in recent years. Hopefully I should be able to get this crop out by then.
