It’s getting time to think about planting onions, shallots, rhubarb, asparagus and garlic. You can buy all these online if you’ve not got a good local garden centre near you. Online at Thompson and Morgan you get great value and fantastic quality plants, bulbs and seeds.

Special offer – Onion Set Santero – ONLY 99p with orders over £8.99

Asparagus : Mondeo : Autumn Planting

All male hybrid. Creating huge interest due to its impressive yields and quality, especially early in the season.
Fairly easy to grow and a good reward crop as it’s something quite expensive to buy in the supermarkets. The spears of Asparagus Mondeo have tight tips throughout the season, excellent flavour and good disease resistance. Someone on our allotment plot has a well establish asparagus bed and it’s very impressive. Good fat spikes of delicious spears of aspargus.
