Well, I would certainly say you both know your onions!!!
Ok so no forking in compost. Which fertiliser do you use? I only have bonemeal at the moment but can buy something at the weekend.
Partner looked on the internet at videos etc., for the spacing. He was the one that wanted to grow vegetables, having never grown anything before. So I encouraged him to plant them as well.
Thank you both for your input, we've learned a lot. Next year it will be a raised bed in the one part of the garden that almost gets full sun, although we have to build it yet!!
