Thanks verdun ill try this out,Happy Christmas
Thanks verdun, I'll hopefully try this out too, thanks for the advice.
I've Red Baron, Bedfordshire Champion and Golden Bear onion seeds from 2010, never got round to sowing them, would they still be viable to sow this year.
Red onions are sweeter and milder. They are good in salads roasted round a joint in the oven and in stir fries. I find they bolt more easily than ordinary onions.
I found growing red onions from sets no trouble although they were picked quite young and didn't bolt like white onions sometimes do. They are more sweeter and not as eye watering when chopped.
