Liz, don't worry about how many threads you start, or how many times you ask for help. We all try to help beginners as much as we can. We were all beginners once.

The best onions from seed.....

I grew Kelsae the year I couldn't get mammoth. I didnt think that they kept well.

I prefer Robinsons mammoth and red mammoth, which I sowed today.

Bedfordshire champion produce small bulbs which keep well.

I wasn't keen on red baron, I grew last year because I couldn't get red mammoth.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I planted Mammoth   red and white onion seeds today. I also started to bring bulb pots onto the patio. I have a problem in that the biggest pots need a barrow, but its going to sink in the grass as its so soggy.

Maybe we could get you up here for a weekend, Verdun? Barnsdale, Chatsworth, Bluebell arboretum, lots to see up here. You might need your thermal underwear though.

Is it too wet.? I allow that sort to get pretty dry and then give them a soak. Let it drain Off so they do not stand in water.

Lavender from seed is easy enough, but there is variation in the plants. If you want a neat hedge of one variety, i think that growing cuttings from one good plant, so they are all clones is best.
