My onions are splitting, advice please
« on: July 04, 2018, 15:44 »
This is my first year trying to grow the really big onions you see at shows, but some have started spitting, do I need to harvest them?
And will they be any good for the show bench, I know they wonít win but taking part is fun! Thatís what I keep telling my self.
And also do I just dry them in the sun ?
And how long do they need to dry before the show?
Thank you in advance for any help

Welcome to the forum Sharon ;)

Some articles here that might help you.

There are links at the bottom for more 'Show Onions' advice.

Good luck
