I know that Himalayan honeysuckle does seed itself all over the place, but it is worth it just to see the blackbirds repeatedly launching/ jumping off the ground and trying to grab a berry before they crash land.Also, as someone else said, the seedlings are easy to remove from where you don't want them.

Gardeners World - not back for 4 weeks!

Can I sue the BBC when I suffer from withdrawal symptoms due to absence of Monty et al for 4 weeks? I am SO disappointed that my viewing highlight of the week won't be there.

Try to tip the whole of the contents of the pot into another container- even an old compost bag would do- disturbing the plant roots as little a possible.Then feed them until the leaves die back. You can then let the containers dry out and harvest the bulbs for replanting in the autumn.

Oooh Those replies make me feel so much better and not such a dud spring onion gardener! Thanks to everyone. I'll have a go at the suggestions. White Lisbon is my variety too. Maybe someone can suggest a better one?

Why do my spring onions take forever to grow? I am still waiting for those planted as seeds last year to get to a size big enough to eat-  the seed packet said they'd only take 6 weeks- not more than 12 months!

I have tried them in pots in the greenhouse, and outside in the veg garden in a good garden soil. Actually the story is the same with radishes.

I live in central Scotland.
