Thanks BF. I think tradition only says Easter for potatoes as people had 4 days to do it from Good Friday to Easter Monday with a break for church.
Asparagus counts as leaves but also need good roots to produce all the shoots and onions are roots.
We have glorious sunshine at the mo but every day starts with a heavy frost and takes hours to warm up. That should change in time for me to tend to my buddleas tho. My red onion sets will go into modules first so they don't get a shock in a late frost.
Have a good time in the UK. Don't fret, your garden will still be there when you get home and you'll no doubt take it some presents.
