Onions

This year as an experiment I planted a row of onion seeds next to the usual set. As I was checking them today during my weeding marathon I discovered that the seedlings are only as big as the original sets.

I'm tempted to plant more seeds and save the results for next year instead of buying more sets.

I have never bought onion seed as I presumed they would take so much longer to come than the sets...now you have me thinking...I know I have some seeds so i may experiment a little next year too!!

Thanks for the thought.

Me too! I've somehow also been set (Pardon the pun) to think onion seed are less successful. Next year I'm promising myself to give both a go.

Cheers,
Tim

I didn't know onions could be bought in 'sets'. I just bought seeds this year and they are going wild.
