If you cut most of the leaves off, provided the growing points have not been eaten out, they may resprout.

RHS membership is £52 for year.  That includes free admission to all RHS gardens with a guest. Free admission for members to many other gardens.

The chance to have 20 packets of seeds from the seed list each year (some rare stuff) for Post and packing.

A magazine every month, with in depth articles.

Also I have  had other  free seeds from them.

Spear and Jackson Neverbend root breaker.

I saw one in the local garden centre. It has a  long metal shaft for better leverage, and is less likely to break than a spade.

Bed 1 Taters can be grown in fairly fresh manure. The best stuff is black, crumbly, well rotted and does not smell. At this stage you can also use it in bean trenches, and under courgettes..

Basically manure bed 1 in year 1 , in year 2 put peas and beans. year 3 grow brassicas. Brassicas benefit from nitrogen left by peas and beans.

Onions also grow in fertile soil which was manured last year.. Bed 5 does not like manure at all. so would be last in a rotation. Onions like it rich. Mine are growing on last years well rotted and will be massive.

Good Evening FORKERS
