spugh22; take account of the breeding of your onions. If they are F1 you may waste a lot of your time growing the seed only to end up with useless plants/onions.
If you want to experiment, fine, but it may be better to buy good quality seed or sets.
If you plant onions that are growing roots, of course they bolt. Onions are biennial and always produce flowers in their second year. Nothing to do with the weather.
Linda, what kind of onion sets. Are they for Spring planting, in which case it is too late, or are they for Autumn planting, in which case it is a bit early.
Or are they just some sets that have been lying around for months?
Hello Welsh Onion-was given them a couple of weeks ago and they should be for spring planting I think (Sturon and Stuttgarter). If I am too late, will they br OK to try in Autumn, or will thet keep for next year?
