The best growers often grow them along the edge of their leek beds under cover. In all cases you will have beautiful carrots for eating and they can be left in situ until you lift them to eat. You can also use large 30 litre pots filled with John Innes No 2 also. 
They can also be sown outdoors in the conventional way in the garden in good land.
