Started preparing for winter on Monday morning and as I am placing the stuff I want to protect from the potential ravages of winter under glass, I decided to use this section of the forum.

Thought I would give you the 'Garden Tour' to show you how things stand;

Pics 1 & 2: I emptied my 8x6 greenhouse on Monday, Washed the glass on Tuesday and put these plants in this morning (Wed)

Pic 3: Partially filled cold frame closed for the winter and a few bags of rubbish ready to be taken to the tip.

Pic 4: another partially filled cold frame.

Pic 5: I plan on tidying up these Cyclamen before I plant them out in the Rockery.

Pic 6: The Rockery.

Pic 7: Inside my heated greenhouse or put it another way; my winter work house!

Pics 8 & 9;  A few perennial seedlings progressing that hopefully will survive till planting out time next year!

This is how various parts of my garden are looking as of this morning;

Pic10: View across my Front Garden.

Pic 11: Patio part prepared for Spring with pots of Crocus, Daffodils, Alliums, and Tulips.

Pic 12:The Heather bed.

Pic 13: What used to be my Herbaceous Border.

Pic 14: My Pot Store  ('Grot Spot') tidied up and pots & trays WASHED in readiness for next season!

Pic 15: My late supply of Carrots aptly named 'Eskimo'

Pic 16: View from Greenhouse Door.

I hope you enjoyed a walk around my particularly you people who are in 'Lock down' like me! (T2)

Well as it's been a month since I last posted a question..... I've just received my onion sets for autumn planting (if it ever stops raining). I've got Shakespeare, Radar and Snowball (which I'm sure I didn't order but that's another story). As I go through them all to chuck out the mouldy ones (just what you want), some are at least twice big as others.  Should I expect the larger ones to produce larger onions?  Many thanks for the responses.

This year my allotment has been swamped by a weed that I can't identify despite having a book on the subject! It has been on the plot before but never in such numbers. Its very low and spready, hugging the ground and fairly easy to pull out.

I have decided to try again.  I have never managed to get any through the winter.    It is very windy on our site, so I think that upsets them. 
I have aquadulce Claudia.  Any advise would be welcome. 
We are having a big problem with rats.  So they will have start under bottle cloches.  Also squirrels like BBs. 
When is the best time to sow.
