Today's dilemma

Could put onions in the barrow but somehow feels like a waste. Was going to split my hostas. Maybe put some hostas in. I'm but thrown and lost by this one! It's about 2.5ft x3ft and 1 ft to 1.5 ft deep!

Today's dilemma

Afternoon all. Well again after a trip to the stables I get home to another challenge/suprise that the boyfriend has decided to join in my gardening hobby! Not only do I have 500 g of onion sets for 1.15 on bargain price from aldi. I do not have a clue where to plant these! My raised bed is all due to be taken. So my only option is to put them in my flower beds, I wanted to fill the spaces with bedding plants not onions!! Any ideas? How much room do they need, will they grow ok if plants flop over them when indeed they grow! But the next challenge is a wheelbarrow. It was on the side of the road so he knocked on the door and asked for it. It's an old fashioned heavy envelope sided one. Concrete type wheel. It's handled are rusty and rotted through but he salvaged it so I could plant it up at the front! Any ideas what to put in it. Do you think I will have to use just bedding plants and change over winter and summer!!

Poundstretcher is good for pots and trays too. That is where my latest arch came from. May not last a lifetime but worth a pop. Also some massive trig tubs to from my French beans in!

My other half seems to be wanting to harvest seed from a picolini that he has from M&S I'm thinking he doesn't have time to do this. What do you think?

Yup I know. All my flower beds at the front have had total soil replacement so no clay!!!! The back flower beds I have got clay parts and more loamy dry, so will watch where I'm putting them

I'm thinking and only a thought. A one sleeper high bed for flowers then 2 high for the veg. So lots of slow neat growing evergreens for winter then suppliment in spring/summer. Depends if we can source sleepers, hedging such as willow and soil without it costing more than my mortgage !!
