Ive just pulled all my onions from October 2013 and I want to save some for "sets"

They were Radar and Red Cross

Never done this before so any assistance would be appreciated

What do you mean by 'sets.' I presume they are normal-sized onions, not 'set' size.

If you plant them again, they will just run to seed. Sets you buy  are specially heat treated to arrest  development.

Have you grown from seed yet? Everso easy and gives you summat to do eary in the year



No so can you suggest a variety that you are pleased with and I will give it a go

Thanks BH

NewBoy, I would stick with sets until you have some experience. They are foolproof. Have a look at varieties when they come into the shops later in the year.
