Hint for avoiding carrot fly: Sow your seeds in a plastic container and put it on top of your compost bin. this should keep it out of the way of carrot fly. This allows you to control the fineness of the soil – sandy soil stone and manure free is good – any lumps distort the shape of carrots.
You can use fine mesh too to keep away carrot fly or try companion planting.
