We have some onions that we bought and they have gone to seed and we have thought about planting them, do we just plant them in one of our pots that we have filled with mix already or do we have to do something else to the onion before planting it them also we have some potatoes that have sprouted and we are thinking about planting them too

Are they seed potatoes you have purchased from the garden centre which have sprouted? (chitted). If so, it depends on which variety you have as to when they can be planted. New varieties mean that you can plant earlier or even plant at the best time, October, and still be digging for Xmas. Most main crop varieties are best planted in early October. Onions are usually grown from seed for best results. In warm areas onions can be planted in spring, autumn and winter. In cool areas, with short summers, planting time is more critical and slightly different procedures are followed in such regions. Onions need a site in full sun, and do best on a light, deep loam. Soil should be well manured; dig the plot deeply and work in two buckets of well-rotted manure or compost per square metre. Onions of all types grow best in firm ground, so prepare the bed well in advance to give it a chance to settle.
