onions

Round shallots are what I use. I buy sets in Spring, but actually I haven't bought any for a bit as they keep so well I just plant some I grew the year before. That doesn't work with onions, only shallots.

I'm not Paxman but I've got a few questions pretty please...

I thought "oooh goody, it's like a quiz", but Fidgetbones has given all the answers I would have given.

Welcome back, Punkdoc.

Got loads of bulbs to plant so thought I'd try a bulb planter, of course one can't expect a long handled one from a French GC. I'll be on my mat tomorrow.

It's just occured to me that Verdun never used smileys once upon a time. One day he may even have a picture on his avator.

But isn't your garden next to your house, Verdun? That's not far to take a camera!

When you have over an acre of garden and a lot of compost, how do you sterilise it? I would really like to know.

I didn't mean to advertise, I found it on Google and thought it might answer the question that was asked, but I have no interest in the company. But I don't think the link I posted has anything to do with the link Greengardener12 posted. Perhaps he copied the name.

Thank you Marion for your photos, I always enjoy them.

Verdun, where are yours? Your garden must have changed since you last sent some.

Verdun, I divide my heleniums in the spring when the clump is getting big. Last spring I put them in two other places as well. Sometimes there isn't room for anything else, so when perennials get big I just cut out the middles and dig some compost and rotted manure into the middle of the plant which feeds them and prevents congestion. Sometimes I dig out the whole plant and replant the best bits. But only every 3 or 4 years. I know you often move plants, I couldn't cope with my garden if I did everything as thoroughly as you do!

Heleniums are hardy, mine live in the flowerbeds in winter.

Zoomer, does your computer have a little slot that takes a camera memory card? My laptop does. You put in the memory card and my laptop asks if I want to download the photos. I make a named file for them in "my pictures" first so it knows where to download them to.
