    Has anyone tried planting French marigolds next to rows of carrots so that the smell masks that of the carrots hence confusing the carrot fly?

    It works in the greenhouse to control aphids. Worth a try.

    Yes I use them in the greenhouse to good effect, that was why I was wondering about trying them with carrots
