I buy concentrated glyphosate (from Wilkinson, as it happens, 90g/l). Is it possible to make a small amount of gel occasionally?

A second thought. We have a proper nursery (Dundry twixt Cheltenham and Gloucester) near here. I bought three different onion setts (Electric, Radar, and Shenshyu) for about £9 in brown paper bags and that was about 500 onions. As someone said, you do the maths.

Or, pick them, chop, sautée, and into the freezer. I use those plastic rectangular pots that take-away curried come in. Once frozen, they come out (like giant ice cubes) and pack very efficiently in a freezer. Their volume reduces by about half when sautéed. So, useful just to put in as the base of many casserole type dishes.
