Grow Your Own / Re: Have you ordered your seed spuds yet?
« Last post by mjg000 on Today at 22:37 »
Have just placed my order from the Scottish supplier, don't know why, except I've always done it and then topped up from our allotment shop if necessary.  2kg each of Red Duke of York, Charlotte and Kestral.  I too enjoy the feeling of Spring coming if I have onion seeds starting and potatoes chitting....

Grow Your Own / Re: Onions from seed - 2018
« Last post by love-my-plot on Today at 21:59 »
I sowed Ailsa Craig and Red Baron on 7th Jan... spare room, windowsill above radiator. Ailsa craig coming through but no sign of the reds yet. First time doing onion from seed..the new polytunnel isnt up yet so only have a mini plastic greenhouse till then...can I move them outside to that? It currently has various brassica I germinated indoors a week ago then moved them straight out. They seem to be growing well....but as I say, 1st time doing onions from seed so not sure about them.

Last year I sowed some Primo at the start of February, kept under cover until I planted out at the end of March.

I sow my Hispi in mid-Feb and they stay in the greenhouse til mid march and then go under debris netting, which I suppose also gives some protection.
T&M suggests a Jan sowing is possible though

Very cold,quite a bit of wind still blustering about, then heavy squalls if icy rain at frequent intervals.

Couldn't get to sleep with the wind howling and things banging around. Actually checked the greenhouse at 2.30am as I heard a crash. All was well :)

It's a bit calmer now but cold - wind coming back tonight. I might head out to the potting shed although I feel like going back to bed if the truth be known.

I fear for you when you say you went out to check the greenhouse on nights like that, there’s nothing you could do at that point & it must be incredibly dangerous,what if a piece of glass were to fly off when you were there? Doesn’t bear thinking about 😱
