GIANTS OF STEAM: Are at the Bluebell Railway today, Friday to Sunday. Rimetable and details can be found at https://www.bluebell-railway .com/whats_on/autumn- steam-gala/. Visiting locomotives include Gresley A4 Pacific class No. 60009 Union of South Africa (courtesy of the Cameron Trust) and LNER Thompson class B1 No. 61306 ‘Mayflower’ (courtesy of David Buck). The iconic, streamlined locomotive, No. 60009 used to work on the East Coast main line and is sadly due to retire early in 2019. This is probably one of the last opportunities to see her under steam in the South East. There will be a special intensive timetable operating over the weekend, so there will be lots of opportunities to travel behind these magnificent Giants and to watch them in action.

HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY: October is the month to think of planting over wintering onions, garlic, shallots, broad beans and peas. The idea is to get them planted whilst there is still some warmth in the soil so they can be directly sown. This is fine for shallots which are slow growing over a long period. However with onions and garlic I start them off in pots in the greenhouse to get them going and plant them out when green shoots appear above ground and roots appear at the bottom of the pot. Onions should be planted just below ground level with the tops showing whilst garlic should be planted deeper; about the same depth as the length of the clove. This is because garlic produce their bulb below ground level and do benefit from a period of cold. Onions produce their bulb above ground. Always buy garlic specific for autumn planting of which there is a lot of choice. The best shallots are Jermor, Griselle and golden gourmet and of onions Radar and Shakespeare. Don’t forget Elephant Garlic for a trouble free large glove of a slightly different flavour and a lovely allium flower. Overwintering onions can be grown from seed but I find this unreliable and time consuming so go for sets. For broad beans either superaguadulce or for a dwarf variety ‘The Sutton’. Start them off in the greenhouse in pots to avoid mice, birds and slugs and plant out when two leaves have appeared. Do not be in a hurry. The idea is to have only two or three sets of leaves by the time of the cold weather of January and February. Any bigger and they are more susceptible to cold and disease. I plant mine on November 5. Overwintering peas can either be sown direct or started in the greenhouse in root trainers. Try Meteor and Douce Provence; both dwarf varieties requiring little support. They are not as hardy as beans and do benefit from some protection during cold spells. Place grease bands round fruit trees to prevent wingless female winter moths from getting up the tree to lay their eggs in next year’s flower buds’.
