I started harvesting my Spring Onions today. And it’s not a minute too soon for me. I foolishly decided to broadcast sow them in a little patch between the stone path and the greenhouse door. This seemed like a good idea because you can get more into a smaller space.
The problem is, as they grow so do the weeds and the spaces in-between the plants are not wide enough to get a hoe in there. So the weeds just grow.
Broadcast sowing other, more leafy plants like Carrot is fine since their leaf canopy blocks out more light and so the weeds don’t flourish. Spring Onions however, don’t have this so they are not ideal.
Anyway, we are harvesting now and I’m clearing the weeds as I go. Now, can someone remind me not to make the same mistake next year? Great, thanks.
