I sowed my spring onions from seed into the soil last year and they also took a long time to mature most of them ending up in the compost bin in October, but the previous year i brought them on in a polysterene tray before planting out and had a great crop.I am trying both methods this year to see which method gives the best result, my money is on the polysterene tray method.
