    Blueberries, do need to repot?

    I would definitely give them more room to grow. Those pots look tiny compared to the plant.Additionally it helps during summer as bigger pots can store more moisture for your plants. You don't...

    What to do now with my onion and shallot seedling?

    A weak feed might help but I think it has more to do with amount of daylight. They pick up quickly from now on.Without lights I don't think sowing earlier would make much difference.

    I only ever grew these once and if I remember correctly they are pretty unstable plants even when planted out and full grown. Seem to remember them getting blown over very easily. I'd be careful about burying the stems too deep, maybe some support would be a better idea.

    Parsnips and carrots (i like a roast parsnip or two) I'm not sure if bags will suffice. If you've got room in the raised bed I'd put them in there without the manure. I'd grow those in a deep loam with a nice dressing of blood fish and bone raked in, maybe a bit of homemade compost if available.
