Illinois Wildflowers. HOW TO GROW GIANT ONIONS. .Written by featured author, Margaret Robinson To many gardeners the sight in August of a bed of very large onions just reaching maturity is a treasured satisfaction of a job well done.
This achievement can be reached by even the new gardener given the correct soil, preparation and of course the important, correct variety. Preparation of the soil should be started as soon as the previous crop has been harvested, but never when the soil is too wet, for this breaks the soil structure, this work is best done before Christmas. To achieve top results the onion bed should be a well open site with good drainage, trench approximately. 18in (45cm) deep, fork the bottom of each trench if solid. Into every four square yards of the bed work in the following: four forkfuls of pea, bean or pea haulms, one barrow of well rotted farmyard manure, 5oz (141gm) bone meal, 6oz (170gm) sulphate of potash. Cover the seeds once sown with 0.6cm of the same compost which has been put through a fine sieve. The Tree Collard « A Growing Obsession. Let’s read the label, shall we?

Nourse Farms. Balsamorhiza sagittata (Arrowleaf Balsamroot) Wildflower Seed. About Arrowleaf Balsamroot: Native to the deserts and mountains of western United States, Arrowleaf Balsamroot is a spring blooming member of the sunflower family.
Its deep taproot enables this plant to survive fire, drought, and grazing. Animals of the mountains and prairies such as deer, elk, pronghorn, and sheep love to feed on its foliage. This plant also has a history of extensive medicinal and culinary use, primarily by Native Americans. Captain Lewis gathered the first Arrowleaf Balsamroot specimen on July 7, 1806 as he and the Lewis and Clark expedition traveled along Montana’s Blackfoot River. The plant’s Latin name of “Balsamorhiza” is derived from its strongly balsam scented root, while “sagittata” refers to Sagittarius, the constellation of the archer.

A companion bed of herbs and vegetables: I planted a thick bed of herbs and vegetables. After selecting the main ones I wanted, I added a few plants purely for their value as companion plants: e.g., horehound for the tomatoes and yarrow for the herbs. Then I sorted everything out according to likes and dislikes, e.g., tomatoes like both dill and carrots, but dill and carrots dislike each other, so the carrots went on one edge and side of the bed; the dill went on the other.
Then I arranged things according to soil strata, e.g., root crops mixed with bushy herbs; tallest plants at the back. and kohlrabi thrown in for comic relief. Botanical gardens in the US.
