    • Q:

      Onion seed

      Hello, I am looking to order some Onion Rossa Savonese seed for some work at the University. I need seed that has not been treated with any fungicide or anything. I was hoping you could tell me whether the seed you supply is treated or untreated? Many thanks

        Hello There, The seeds we sell are not organic I'm afraid so it is quite possible they have been treated. I'm sorry not to be more help. Helen Plant Doctor

      • A:

        You can start chitting your early and maincrop seed potatoes in February, but the best time to plant is in early to mid spring. As for growing vegetables in your polytunnels, you have lots of options. Spinach, kale, and some varieties of lettuce will live through the winter in a polytunnel. Certain kinds of onion work well from an autumn sowing, and you'll get a much earlier crop than if you'd waited until spring. Other possibilities are cabbage, Pak Choy, Chinese cabbage, and most root crops. Leeks, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips and radishes, can be sown for winter harvest

    • Q:

      Am I too late to grow vegetables?

      I'd love to grow my own potatoes, onions and carrots, which I use a lot in the kitchen, but don't know where to start or if I'm too late. Please can you advise me?

        Now is the perfect time to start thinking about growing potatoes, as they need to be chitted before planting. Chitting just encourages shoots to grow before you pop them in the soil in early spring. The onion sets can be planted in March or April, while carrot seeds can be sown from late February as long as they are protected.

    Drying onions

    It's been a good onion year: sun plus a spot or two of rain and mine are about as enormous as they've ever been. My prize specimens have been my ''Stuttgarter Giant' - a sort of beginner's show onion. Not quite as large as some but satisfyingly eyecatching
