Carrot Fly

I have had carrot fly damage for 2 years in one of my carrot growing containers (I have heavy clay soil unsuitable for carrots). It is a mix of compost and sand which has been very successful. Will i have to empty it all out and start with fresh (quite a lot to replace) or is there another solution?

The other container about 100 feet away from theinfected one has as yet not been a problem


  • I can't answer your question but I am bumping this because I have grown carrots very successfully in tyres this year and want to know if I should change compost to prevent carrot fly! Hope someone can help.

  • Thank you Verdun. Interested to know why the blood fish and bone?

  • Thank you! I thought you might say that - replacing all the compost is sooo expensive!
