Growing Onion

View the Onion page

25 May 16 Colin Campbell (New Zealand - temperate climate)
I planted onion seedlings 2 months ago. They all look healthy but I am concerned at the length of the tops--up to 30cm--which is causing some lifting of the bulb. Should I trim the tops back or leave as is? Your advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
