Onions

I would like to grow some onions for showing. I read you can by onion seedlings in early spring. Does anyone know where I can buy them?

Re: Onions

Tommy,

Nice to have a new member. I grow onions for the show and unless you have excellent facilities(heating & lighting from Jan onwards) it is difficult to grow from seed. I buy young plants from two sources - Marshalls & Robinsons. Both can be found on the net and this year it is the latter plants that have performed better. They arrive April/May as substantial young plants, which can be potted on into 10cm pots for a few weeks before putting into bed. Well manured, raised bed is best.

Cheers
