Winter at WESC

This winter in the polytunnels we have been planting shallots, onions and garlic.

They are a really good size for our students to handle, very robust and frost hardy so pretty reliable for the cold weather we are having.

We have planted them in our polytunnels in well prepared free draining compost.

In rows spacing correctly for each cultivar, using bamboo canes as spacers.

 We have chosen to do the garlic in modules and plant on later.

Also, we have been hard at work in preparation for sowing in the spring. 

This has involved clearing the raised vegetable beds, mulching and fleecing.

Finally, Matthew has been potting on the Geranium Palmatums in preparation for planting out in the spring.
