Show size onions like my uncle used to grow
My Uncle used to grow huge onions for show, when i was a child we used to go to Newbury and bring back some of the "small" onions (must of been a couple of pounds each at least) it used to take my Mum a week to use one up.
I really want to grow onions like my uncle used to but my onions this year ended up more like small shallots .
I am going to try my uncles method (or what i can remember) Ailsa craig seeds planted new years day, but thats all I know of his method. Plant ailsa Craig and do it new years day.
I want to try another more modern variety either from seed or sets but not sure which variety to go with any hints or tips would be appreciated on variety to try or ways to grow huge onions.
