Some of my autumn onions both red ans white appear to have rotted, which is annoying as I use a good quantity of onions throughout the year. My garlic however has all survived which is surprising. I haven't put in my spring sets yet. SO fed-up with the cold wind.The propagator has once again come into it's own with a cozy home for the new brassicas,leeks etc.

I also planted some Solent Wight garlic last autumn into cells and put them into my cold frame, when I looked at them in January the compost looked so wet I thought they had rotted away, so last week I bought some more from the garden centre - Picardy Wight I think and planted them in cells. When I lifted the lid of the cold frame to put the new ones in, there were lovely green shoots on the autumn planted ones, they hadn't rotted after all, so in future I need to be more patient.

about a month ago i planted out in the garden some carrots - nantes2, salad oinions seeds and some onion seeds - Ailsa craig and have still not seen anything come up. Is it me not been patient or do they take so long to germinate.

At last I've been able to remove the garlic smell from my conservatory by planting my garlic bulbs which were getting pot bound, out in the garden. They have great root systems so should do well now although my soil is still very cold. A week of good weather now will make such a difference. The early potatoes are sprouting waiting for Good Friday.

Planted my onions and garlic on the 4th of March, Had about 10 frosts since! I have pics on the website. wellrooted.co.uk. Really hope they are OK . Last night i planted peas and beans in the conservatory ready for spring now!

Had to share this with you - preparing the ground for potatoes, I dug up a clump of seven shallots which I must have missed last year. They had begun to sprout so I divided and planted them again - shallots for free! I also had the pleasure of my first butterfly, a peacock, so all in all a lovely morning's gardening.

I must admit i don't always have successes planing onions and shallots. Those i put in the ground in March seem to be doing fine. Keeping an eye and will report back on progress.

Hopefully planting my onions and new potatoes this weekend or early next week. Raining today so unable to do much. Yet to plant and other veg as ground has been very cold.

How long can you expect for garlic (Solent White) to germinate? Planted at end of Feb
