What will happen to my onion if I plant it in August in Lesotho (particularly along Caledon)? I am in Berea district in Lesotho. My fields are on the bank of Caledon River.

Gardenate suggests you plant Feb to April. Try planting it in August and it probably won't even germinate. Most plants have a defined time of the year to grow in a particular climate zone.
