Storing onions

Help. Can anyone give me advice concerning storing onions? My crop are laid out on my greenhouse shelves as I don't have a shed and some especially the red onions have turned mouldy and are starting to rot.


  • Thanks Philippa I am trying to use them up quickly as there never seems to be a day that passes without using an onion. But I still have had to compost quite a lot so they are eventually going back into the soil.

    I find that red onions have more problems than brown ones. They seem more liable to bolt and they don't store so well, so use them first.

    The greenhouse will also be damp I should think. Try and find a cool dry place for them.
