I find that onions grown from seed store better
Thank Paolo. Yes, some packets of seed provide even better value, and deliver even greater savings! Certainly worth considering when trying to keep costs down and increase productivity.
And I think this answers the point raised above questioning returns, as it looks as if returns can be of an even greater magnitude, not lower.
I planted sets last spring, and they were very late to harvest, in the end I lifted them toward the end of October as I was afraid they'd get hit with the cold snap that was forcast. They were a great success. I planted Elisa Craig seeds in modular trays in the autumn & they're overwintering on my front porch where it's sheltered & I'll plant them on when I've ground ready & I'll also put down some sets in the spring and compare results.
