Onions - Dopey Question No 47

NewBoy2NewBoy2 BristolPosts: 1,804

Ive just pulled all my onions from October 2013 and I want to save some for "sets"

They were Radar and Red Cross

Never done this before so any assistance would be appreciated

    What do you mean by 'sets.' I presume they are normal-sized onions, not 'set' size.

    If you plant them again, they will just run to seed. Sets you buy  are specially heat treated to arrest  development.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    NewBoy, I would stick with sets until you have some experience. They are foolproof. Have a look at varieties when they come into the shops later in the year.
