Winter Onions when to harvest.

QuestionsWinter Onions when to harvest.
RiasedBed Staff asked 8 years ago

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.

Autumn onions sown in August or autumn sets, planted in September, will be gettign large now and should be ready in July, having bulbed up.

You might also have sown spring onion seed and these would be usable scallions now or before now.
