The perennial type are quite vigorous and have no small.

Hi, Wills

Weather & soil conditions permitting early March would be the best time to plant out those SPs.

I say weather & soil conditions permitting because when you remove them from their pots (as with all transplants) they will take a little check and need to recover.

Try to avoid icy winds...even if you have to provide a temporary windbreak. 

HELLO FORKERS!

I don't post very often as am not the chatty type, but look in every day to see how you're all getting on.

Sheesh! Only 5512 messages (ranking sixth) of utter twaddle posted on the 'brighter side'.

Sorry about that, but you do rather lead with your chin.

Thanks, Lesley ....taken just about half an hour ago.

Last night, about 3am (when I was debating whether or not I needed a wee)  the moon  shone across my bed nearly as bright as daylight.

Big Onions

Robinsons has been a supplier of giant onion seed for as long as I can remember. Also some garden centres sell young plants of Kelsae & Ailsa Craig, which (IMHO) is a very good way of getting started.
