  • Fertiliser onions and potatoes

    Good morning I dug some manure last year into the bed I intend to use for potatoes and onions this year
    What advice can you give please as to a suitable fertiliser to use when planting the seed potatoe and onion sets

    Many thanks P

    I have tried the boxed potato fertiliser in the past, I think it was Bowers, can't say I noticed much difference in the crop, I tend to use what ever I have to hand, usually blood fish and bone, same goes with the onions.
    If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

      My potatoes get manure in the bottom of the trench when I plant and my onions tend to get a sprinkle of fish blood and bone.

          Chicken manure pellets or BFB also for me.

            I use a bit of BFB & some liquid seaweed fertiliser for both,you can water over the onion leaves like a foliar feed as well as on the soil.

              Chicken manure pellets for the spuds and BFB for the onions. Also I gave the autumn onions some potash last month as I have a feeling it helps against the rust which is endemic on the allotment.
