The Flyaway Carrot is one of the best tasting vegetables to pick fresh from your garden. This variety has some resistance to the dreaded carrot-fly, but sow seed thinly to reduce the need for thinning as carrot-fly are attracted by the sweet smell.

It is considered good companion planting to sow rows of carrots in between onions as the smell of the onions puts off the carrot-fly, a lot of onions are required though but worth a try.

Carrot Flyaway F1Vegetable Seed Information

Seed Quantity: Approx 500 seeds per pack.
Site:
Deep, fertile sandy soil free from stones is ideal. Don't grow on ground that has been manured in the last year as it causes forking. A sunny spot is perfect.
When to Sow:
March to July.
How to Sow:
Sow thinly, directly into a drill 1.5cm deep. Aim for a seed every 2.5cm to avoid the need for too much thinning and sow in rows 15cm apart. If you do need to thin do it at night when the carrot-fly is not around.Lightly cover the seed with fine soil and water carefully with a fine hose. Seedlings should appear at about 17 days.
Care:
Water at night and keep watered in dry periods. Try not to weed especially during the day as it may attract carrot-fly.
Harvest: June to October. Lift all remaining roots by October, remove soil from the roots and store in dry sand but do not allow the carrots to touch each other as it can cause rotting.
