Planting over-wintering alliums.

The first outside ground we ever prepared was for half a bed of onions and garlic in October 2010. In 2011 we did the same again, but 4 whole beds that time, at the end of September and start of October, and there's photos of us in shorts and sunshine pushing the cloves into the soil. This year we have planted 5 beds, and included half a bed of over-wintering "Eschalote" shallots too as an experiment (but probably too expensive to repeat?). Except that this year we planted out on a foul afternoon, and all got wet to the skin doing so, so there are no photos..... The onions are again "Radar" and garlic "Vallelado". Let's hope the garlic performs better than it did this year.....
