Here are mine taken today . They are supposed to be Mammoth :D

I知 going to give them some Baby Bio in a minute. That should finish them off !!

Don't be too down, they look OK to me :)  Seed grown onions do take ages to get going, but they grow for longer and end up bigger (usually) than sets.   No promises, but you have a lot of growing season to go yet  ;)

Thanks for that. Only second time of growing from seed and I was quite chuffed last year . I didn't realise that you were supposed to feed the onion seedlings until I read about it last week , so I'm going to give that a go.

Thanks again for the 'chin up'  :)

Here are my Globos in their new home. The leaves were a bit wayward, but this morning (three days after I took this photo) new leaves are growing up straight

They look great ! Have you had them under lights ?

No, they have been in the greenhouse which is frost free. Sown at the end of December in a deep  tray, fed occasionally with general liquid stuff, very diluted. I don't have any lights

Planted my onions out today - fewer red than I would have liked, but at least some seed eventually germinated! (1st batch of spring onions went out too)

My Globo under a mesh tunnel.  I have some out in the open as well, to see how they do in comparison.  At the moment there is not much to choose between them, but they have only been planted out a week or two.

Mine have gone out in May before and been fine.  They grow on into the late summer and autumn, so I never rush them out if the weather or soil conditions are unfavourable  :)
