Carrots in a greenhouse?

Can you grow carrots in a greenhouse or do they prefer a lower temperature?
I work very hard so don't expect me to think as well!

I've found them to grow fine in tubs and pots in my greenhouse. There's some impressive ones grown in a polytunnel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kP9mZmOkPz4

For the last 2 years I have sown carrots in boxes (pre wheelie bin recycle boxes about 12 inches deep) and had carrots early. Was a bit late sowing this year (an early variety) but I have defined carrots growing so should be harvesting mid May.

Carrots love some old compost in a holed bucket, or a big pot!

Better to have them in a watering tray too, they bulk up nicely that way. You can always move them outside if it gets too hot anyway...
