Time to plant your Onions and Garlic

by Malachy - Horticulturist CountryLife Dungarvan | Oct 13, 2015
Time to plant your Onions and Garlic

While many people will think the vegetable garden comes to a stop during autumn and winter this is not the case for onions and garlic. Autumn is in fact the best time to plant these crops as they need the cold temperatures of winter to ensure they will mature and swell next summer.

At the moment in CountryLife we have a wide range of onions and garlic sets to plant into your vegetable beds. At the moment we have everything from red and white onions to shallots and in garlic everything up to elephant garlic.
