Planting onions

I really enjoy getting outside in our garden space, tidying up the leaves and looking at the plants we have growing. Everything I have growing is in a container or a pot but at the moment things are looking very bare and empty. We have a shady courtyard and have tried a few times to grow veg and plants. We had a few successful ‘crops’ last year, we managed to grow rocket, salad leaves, a few tomatoes, some chillies and one courgette! This year I’m hoping for a few more successes and to grow some flowers in window boxes, root vegetables and a few more plants.

To start things off I prepared one of the planters and planted some onion bulbs. I’m really not too sure how they will turn out or even if they will grow but it is a start to getting a more populated set of planters!
