I've grown ball-shaped carrots in multipurpose compost so I don't think that carrots need sandy soil. What sort of soil do you have otherwise? They do need something fairly loose and rich in organic matter but not freshly manured.
wistfully hoping to one day be mostly organic gardener in North London.

can you put autumn carrots in the same place as early carrots
