Growing Onion

View the Onion page

09 Jan 09 stewart (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
Discovered onions growing (planted by previous owner of property) so I dug some up (brilliant white). All sizes and some throwing new ones off the roots?Cut a larger one up to find only about 4 layers and then solid onion? What's the go? Is this about storing and then they develop the other layers? I've not grown them before so have no idea.
