I sowed some carrots a few weeks a go and they germinated well.However I have noticed they are slowly being eaten by something and very few of the seedlings are left.What`s the culprit?



It could be carrot fly are they covered by mesh mine were decimated about this time last year by them so this year got some enviromesh and so far so good

The tops appear to have been eaten.

Thankyou.I think you have hit on the problem.The carrots were near a grassy area which was quite long and really needs to be kept shorter in future.
