  • I used to hang my onions to dry by putting them on the slatted greenhouse benches and letting the leaves hang down.  after a couple of weeks when they had dried off I took thee at a time and plaited the leaves together adding new ones in as I came to the end ofthe leaves.  Depending on weight and size I could get 12 or more in a plait then I tied string around the top to make a loop and hung them in the out house.  They would easily keep until the following April.  I haven't been as successful these last couple of years and have only managed to salvage about 6 onions out of 100 sets.  Lousey weather, a lot rotted or didn't even grow.
