    First time onions and garlic

    Cavelonero is easier than spinach for me, and a nice versatile dark green leaf. We use it as it comes and together in curries etc.

    Shade Plants

    The ones i grow in shaded areas are euonymus. I've got varigated 'emerald and gold' and a 'silver n cream' example. They do well in shade, spread well and can be pruned to keep shape.

    To fleece or not to fleece!
