Is it safe to transplant onion and leek at this stage? I want to tidy up and move onto winter growth program.

The other question is broad beans - mine grew through Februarys cold snap, can the seeds go in now to over winter?

Hi SimonJ yeah the leeks can be put out post haste. What type of onions had you in mind. White lisbon can overwinter in the mild Connemara climate. The beans ( Aqua Dulce) should go in at the end of Oct.

The onions I would like to move are Red Barron (medium size) Ailsa Craig and bedfordshire champs - grown from seed and still small despite having gone out in Feb??

Leeks are Musselburg - and thanks a ton for the bean variety.

I grew - I think they are called - Bunnions exhibition.
Would it be worth drying a few out and plantin them in October as well?
