Onion Harvest

Posted: 12/12/2017 at 15:05

This year I had an excellent crop of onions, last year I had a crop failure as they just stopped growing about the size of a golf ball.

I lift mine when the leaves start falling over, then clean off all soil and lay them on a bench in the shed till completely dry, I then cut off the tops and store in plastic trays in the loft,

As a retired garden machinery dealer I would only recommend Stihl or Husqvarna, they are more expensive but far better quality and easy to get spares if required. As always you get what you pay for

Ride-on Mower grass collection problem

I take it the collector is a plastic mesh if so are the small holes in it clear?? if not the air cannot get out and will reuslt in collection being poor

If the mesh is clogged pressure wash it, 

Is the collector a powered brush system and if so is the belt fitted correctly. It could be spinning in the wrong direction

My daughter has just moved into a two year old house that has been empty for eighteen months, The first job was to Glyphosate the large weed bed that had developed and leave for three weeks to die down. We then dug over the whole area over the last few weekends and are now leaving it until next year for the winter to break it up, I will then rotavate it and lay new turf. 

As to any unwanted bushes just dig them out
