Planting garlic

Hi Andy Some onion and shallot cultivars are suitable for autumn planting:

These types are less sensitive to cold exposure that induces bolting (flowering)
Aim to plant onions in September and shallots in October
Use the same spacing for spring-planted sets or module grown plants
Autumn planting is not suitable for heavy soils prone to waterlogging as the crop is more likely to succumb to disease RHS
