Over wintered onions.
« on: May 18, 2020, 07:50 »
Good Morning everyone, not been on for a while with everything that's going on!  My over wintered onions are looking really healthy in the raised bed.  Just looking for tips on when to stop feeding/watering to get the best crop.  Thanks, and hope you are staying safe and keeping well......and growing great veg! :) :) :)

John's advice

One caveat for onion growers is to not overwater them. They are shallow-rooted and once established they do not need much water. They also do not compete well with weeds at any time, particularly when young. In years of heavy rainfall, they appreciate a clear, protective cover to keep soil a little drier.
