Planting Onions in the Plot

Filed under: Chef's Plot, vegetable gardening — TopVeg @ 11:25 pm

Two weeks after digging up his lawn, the Chef has planted some onions:

  • Two rows of ‘Stuttgarter Giant’
  • One row of red onions: “Red Baron

The onions were planted 5 inches apart.  For more information on planting onions click this link to planting autumn onions.

Before planting the onions, the Chef prepared his plot:

  • he scattered a handful of fertiliser onto the soil.  He chose a 7.7.7 fertiliser, reasoning that he has a virgin plot, so it will need a bit of everything.
  • he broke the soil down to fine lumps using a rake.

The Chef is planning to plant broad beans as soon as possible and is going to look for some Express Broad Bean seed.

But it has been good to hear that he has already been planting onions into the plot.
