I have a couple of raised veg beds. They're currently covered over with some weed control matting, as it's winter and I'm hoping to need to do a little less weeding come spring.
However I'm considering planting some winter varieties of onions - I don't think I've seen many examples of veg beds covered with weed control fabric. Should I remove it before planting, or should I just poke holes in it and sow there?
My major point of concern is that it makes uprooting things with big roots (onions, beetroot) more difficult. And of course, that I've never had much success with the seeds staying where I put them and them wandering over the bed.
