More Onions [Allium cepa] started.

More Onions [Allium cepa] started.

I have started more onions for a brief spell,before moving on to a deeper area.Onions do well with the Cabbage[Brassica] areas,and also with the Tomatoes.[Lycopersicon esculentum].Onions do not like the Legumes,Peas and Beans.

Thank you,Clara.I do indeed,especially as with the Carrots for example,when along with the Onions,both scent help each other.The scent of the Carrots ward off Onion fly and in return the scent on the Onions help again Carrot fly.

The mirror in the background makes it seem like you have even MORE onions that you have. I want a big mirror on one of my garden walls to create a 'Trompe L'oeil' effect to make the garden seem bigger.

That it does,Jacinta.My plan is to reflect as much bright weather as is possible.
