Growing Onion

View the Onion page

04 Jan 09 Jay (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
I have just pinched out the seed heads on a few that have formed. We are using them fresh from the ground right now, and are waiting for them to die back before lifting. First time onion grower, but am wrapped with the ease of growing and the harvest. All 150+ seedlings have produced 2 - 4" bulbs. Used seed trays for seed, them planted out at 5" spacing. No loses, and NO THINNING (I hate that bit!!!m lol re: carrots) Cheers!
