Lavenders going this year for me too. Most montbretia now gone and I'm getting rid of some of the headbourne h agapanthus as they are thugs here too.
Landgirl, if you want to try giving onions one more chance, start the sets in modules in a cold GH or coldframe and plant out when well rooted. Works for me on my cold clay soil which gave the same results as you had when I planted them direct.
