have we all been beguiled by their description in a catalogue?

I think I have  :lol:  My second lot, which are clump sown in modules, are up and looking pretty good.  Whoever Isobel is, she liked the warmer days of spring much more than the chillier ones when I first tried sowing.  We shall see if I have been suckered into buying a novelty again  :unsure:  I am easy prey during the grey days of January and February every year   :blush:

They're fine and look just like my 'normal' onions do at the moment. The one in the picture is a big variety and will easily reach 4-5lb in weight with no special treatment - I was given a few seeds a few years ago by someone who regularly grows them to 10lbs+.

Cheers, I do need to get round to weeding them. They're taking over at one end of the row, poor onions.

I noticed yesterday that mine desperately need weeding - best get to it tomorrow  ::) 'cos so far they're looking good, one crop that really has appreciated the weather, I think.

A photo of some of my onions grown deep bed stylee. golden bear on the left and long de Florence right. The bed is   2.5m x 1.25m and I think there are about 160 onions in the bed. The sturon growing in another bed are not as far on although planted at the same time they get just a little bit more shade in the morning and it really does make a difference.
