Bountiful Onion Crop

This has been the first year for the new produce garden that is under construction at the back north end of the Holkham Walled Garden. The onions and shallots have done really well and are now drying in the sun in the smaller glasshouses near the gates before delivery to the Hall and Holkham Estate cafes and restaurants.
Jonathan Taylor, the Deputy Head Gardener has supervised the first crops and has been ably supported by the volunteer gardening group who meet on Thursdays. 

It is worth a look back at the photo's of the first sowings to see how well the crop has managed in this first year.
