What did I do wrong..?
My son bought me some onion sets (unnamed unfortunately) back in January. I haven't grown onions before but I looked them up online and it was apparently ok to get them in in Feb, which I did. I placed one set per large pot of multi-purpose compost, with the neck of the set just poking out of the top of the soil. They grew brilliantly and now each have 6inches of green 'leaves?' coming from each set. But today I noticed that every set is soft and feels as if I could squish it completely (which I resisted doing of course). I thought the sets grew into larger onions but these look as if they are going to soften to small, mushy sets that will just die. What did I do wrong? I haven't watered them at all as it's rained regularly and each pot drains well. I thought they were ok to be outside? Help anyone?
