Winter onions

As a novice gardener, just starting out with growing veg, I need all the advice I can get.  I planted onion sets in modules in my unseated greenhouse as Monty advised a couple of weeks ago.  These have all sprouted well and most are over 3inches tall.  Should I plant then out side now. I have raised beds. And should I cover tem at all

    Winter onions are hardy, so get them out now. Planting in cells give them a head start and stops birds pulling them up, so transfer them asap. No need to cover them.

  • Thanks, I have planted them out under a well ventilated cloche, and will  now wait and see.


  • I planted mine out last week so fingers crossed we have given them a good start for a great harvest next year
