When do you normally cover your carrot seedlings with fleece? Mine are about 3" high now. Tony

I cover the carrots when I sow them as they are vulnerable from the moment of germination. September is quite a bad time for carrot fly so you may find your carrot seedlings have already been attacked, but I would cover them anyway in case they haven't. Best of luck!

I took your advice and covered them straight away and I must have been lucky as I have only had one or two affected so far. Had more trouble with rabbits getting under the fleece and eating the tops. With the mild weather they are still growing a bit.
