Moved 9 years ago to a property with an 80ft garden which was just like a field full of weeds! My husband has helped me create the garden of my dreams

Daucus carota subsp. sativus 'Royal Chantenay'

@Andreamarie Me too, but I kept mine in containers this year & spread slug killer so hopefully they're secured. What variety are these?

I think they are Chantenay @zylo. I remember choosing ones more suitable for heavy soil this time ☺

@Andreamarie Never heard if that Variety , though I admittedly am new to carrot growing. I have heard that it's a good idea to do #companionplanting with carrots alongside onions because the strong smell deters Carrot fly, I personally haven't had a problem with carrot fly but thought this tidbit could be useful to a fellow carrot grower in future ☺
