Onion sets - is it all a matter of size?

<< < (2/2)

ancellsfarmer:
While currently I do not grow Autumn onion sets; I have found that few survive on my site that has a high groundwater level in normal winters; they simply rot. I have taken to starting sets in trays of compost I use the carry trays that garden centres receive their potgrown bedding in. 18 x80-100mm potsize This gives a good 'plug' to plant out when ground conditions are fit in Spring. No doubt you could do the same with your 'tiny' Autumn sets, just keeping them moist and crawling along through winter. They could be in a sheltered place outdoors or within a tunnel. Providing a supply to replant any losses from your recently set onions.
