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

it is now over 7 months since i started to spray Jeyes fluid either ready to use or tin, only one deposit in the time due to Kate planting and forgetting to spray around the turned soil, worked for us
