I have very large scallions can i dry and store these like onions,
I have planted a variety of onions and scallions in a raised bed, the tips of some are going yellow, plus some bulbs are coming out of the earth. I pulled a few yesterday and it looks as though, if I leave the rest any longer the stem will grow even bigger and grow down into the bulb if that makes sense? Jopefully you can see what I mean from the photo. Does this mean they are going to seed/bolted, I should take everything out of the ground now, or am I already too late to store? Any tips to stop it happening next year?
I planted some winter onions last Oct/nov.. they have developed into what I would call clusters of what look like large scallions. I have misplaced/lost the info sheet and was wondering if winter onions develope into large onions or into groups of shallots and when should I harvest them? Very vague question....sorry.
Can you tell me what I can do to stop onions going to seed. They are planted out in my veg patch. I planted them in Feb.Why does this happen?
Is it possible to plant onions from ordinary onions that have sprouted in the kitchen drawer or is it best to get bulbs? Also where we live the soil is like a very thick clay, is it best to plant in a container? We have dug in compost etc to the soil last year?
have been growing approx. 300 onion sets (white and red) successfully over many years. Weeds are now a major problem. Is there any type of ground cover on the market to keep the weeds covered, and say holes 6ins apart to allow sets to grow. For age and other reasons i have to reduce labour.
Where can I buy sweet white onion seed or transplants? The onions I want are the ones that are very mild and you can eat like an apple..eHOW.com gives growing instructions.
This is my second year to grown onions they have grown very well, I lifted them in September and but them in a shed with doors now they are all rotting from the stem down. What can I do or what am I doing wrong?
I've sown Giant Stuttgart onions. Some in polytunnel in April and the rest outdoors in June.I sprinkled some organic fertiliser twice during year and watered them regularly.However , they never got passed the scallion size (i.e. 1 inch diam. ).Should I leave in the ground over the winter or eat them?
I grew onions last year in a raised bed. It was the first time I planted onions in it. I had a few different types. I was late picking them but when I did I noticed the white onions were eaten all around the neck. They are not rotting but they seem cleanly eaten from the outside to just short of the center, top to about 1 centimeter down . When I noticed this I just left them there as I was going to pull them later. I now have lots of them sprouting and was wondering should I plant these as I don't think I have a disease.
I hope to pick onions from the garden for the first time during the week, and i am keen to know how best to store them. I would intend to store them in the garage.
Please advise when do you lift yellow onions?
