dug up some carrots on Monday first time for a couple weeks and found a problem , so took a picture , wondered what the problem was , hope somebody can help ?
I would say it look more like carrot fly:
Bad news either way.
I'd have to agree with Bob. Nasty little critters! Got them here as well.
Can be avoided by placing a 2ft high plastic barrier around your carrot bed or grow in a 2ft high raised bed.
Covering with fleece works every time for me. Good luck next time.
I grow groups of chives round mine but never had it, dad reckons she cant fly this high above sea level. I dont know if he's having me on, but in all the years he's grown them the fly has never struck.
Hello all thanks for the info , never had carrot fly before , must have attracted the blighters when dug some up before because thre carrots where fine
Never thin out and have in the past sown between Garlic
