I started mine at Christmas in a propagator. Once germinated they were kept at a minimum of 50f and 12 hours per day of light. For about the last month they have just been in a cold greenhouse with no extra heat or light.
Sets a low standard and fails to achieve it.

They look very impressive Yorkie,wish mine were that big. I will look to potting mine up in that size pots.

Those adjustable loops are a really good idea. As ever the simple designs are always the best.

just thought i would bring this thread back to life, to see how everyones exhibition onions are coping.

mine have been very slow, however a few weeks ago they started to swell and they seem to look bigger every time i look at them.

Heres a pic of what mine currently look like:

Oops ive only just noticed your pic Carroffaggot, they look fantastic, if only mine where half the size of yours i would be happy! strangely i have found that the ones that im growing outside are doing alot better than the ones in the GH, so the ones in the GH are now outside.

I just hope i get something usable from them, i dont think im going to make the local show with them (which is what i intended them for!), there only about the size of an egg  >:(, but they are starting to swell up quickly now - so only time will tell!

These are mine as of today. I dont think they are doing as well as last year. After planting them out we had frost every night for over a week, then they were pelted with hail stones.
