    Flakkee is easy to grow and although considered a main crop variety, can be successionally planted to give a continuous crop, producing large, thick roots. It has a very good colour and flavour. It will thrive in even rather poor soils, but give it some encouragement and you will be amazed and the results.
     

    Carrot is one of the least demanding of crops and probably the widest grown vegetable in British gardens.
