Your Garden in October

This October there is plenty to do in your garden from planting bulbs to raking leaves. Much like the previous month, it’s all about preparing for the upcoming spring and the next harvest. Planning is crucial as what you plant now is how your garden will look next year.

Grow Your Own – Onions

Onions are a kitchen staple and are both undemanding and easy to grow. You can grow onions from seed or by planting sets (immature small onion bulbs) for convenience most choose to plant onion sets. There is a huge variety to choose from, yellow onions are most widely used and we recommend ‘Sturron’ for its high yield, strong flavour and tends to store well. Red Onions tend to be sweeter and are good for salads, we recommend ‘Hyred’ or ‘Red Baron’.
