Looking forward to my lysimachia bougolais ...I'm sure I spell it differently every time;  is it cos I is drunk?........tomorrow.  Hope I can add it to the good guys thread 

more seriously, going to the register office to register my mum's death and get the appropriate paperwork. So much clinical stuff for a very emotional period.

Big Onions

Going back to my original posts.....mammoth are robinsons.  Grew them once and they were jolly big.  However, a good long summer is needed too to,fully ripen those bulbs.  Mind you, they looked good in late summer drying on their raised beds.  If you want to show off large onions is the way to do it.

Weeds!

I would wait for drier conditions and then dig over the ground.  Buttercup will easily be seen and removed.  During the growing season the hoe is king.    Oops! Or queen

Yes but watch what you get from the seed merchants Perki.  Anything you get is likely to be small though ...prob won't flower this year.  If you want one to flower this year I would try for a plant in at least a 1 litre pot and to start them off asap.

oops!  I meant hart canna website
