Carrot root fly
I planted a late crop of carrots on June 1st They were covered with fleece.
When is safe to remove this fleece?
I've already grown carrots successfully this year in containers on outdoor shelves about 4ft off the ground. Not a grub in sight!!
I later planted some in the open ground with fleece cover and I am wondering if anyone knows when the carrot root fly grubs are hatched. The hope is that there are none under the fleece.If they have hatched by now I would risk opening them up to some fresh air.
Any comments would be appreciated
