now thats wet my appitite to grow a 3lb onion .i have a spare bedroom but with the radiator turned off it still gets to about 15/20c is this to warm at the start for them would be thinking of plantinting seeds end dec thanks :)
Good set up yorky as above ? is 15/20 to warm at the start thanks

Sorry I did'nt get back to you sooner on this. 15/20 is ideal for germination,after that they would be better under a grow light  with the temp nearer to 15 than 20. If you havent got a grow light then just give them as much light as you can. You might not break any world records but you should still get some good onions.

Heres a picture of mine as of this morning.

Sets a low standard and fails to achieve it.

Mine have just begun to pop through. Not sure what will happen this year. Last year I'm sure I didn't sow them until Feb or later,my heaviest was 2lb 15 1/2 oz & I got 2nd prize for 3 as grown on13th Aug in our local show.

Thanks yorky will give a go  :)
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humour out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.
Happy new year to you all xx
