You could plant bulbs in pots now to drop into gaps in Spring.

New GW...??

I think for £450,000, we could rustle up 9 people on 50k each, all working half a day each per week.

I removed oxalis triangularis' sidebulb too early... help!

It may be going into dormancy.  Its almost impossible to kill, it may die down but then resprout again.

Stop watering for a bit, let it die down, then after a few weeks start watering again. Don't let it get too hot if you have it indoors.

I would get them in now while the soil is warm.  They will carry on growing. In a pot they are likely to be rootbound by now and will slow down.

I've picked all the borlotti beans and shelled them. Some are not hard. To cook them, do I just add them to soups and stews, or do I soak first?  I intend freezing them, then just adding to soups during the winter. Is this OK. ? I know you are supposed to fully dry them, then soak before use, but I thought this would be more convenient.

6 X Fertilizer

Sprinkle it thinly in Spring. You only need a handful per square yard. It is much stronger than farm yard manure or compost, use it as a fertilizer, not a mulch. Using it now would lead to soft growth before the winter which is likely to be damaged by a harsh winter.
