Winter onions

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 11:07

My magazine did a trial last year and they planted on the 20th of September. Red onions are more likely to bolt than others, they had 10 per 50 planted bolting of red onions. Whereas I had 100% of winter red onions bolting. I'm back to growing Shenshyu this year.

Talkback: The best crops for flavour

Posted: 19/09/2014 at 15:08

Do not grow Ildi, lovely looking yellow cherry sized plum shape. Tastes like wallpaper paste (in my imagination anyway).

Do not grow yellow stuffer either, another yellow tomato with no flavour.

Pink flamingo had very little flavour and kept falling off the plants.

Gardeners Delight and Sungold are my favourite so far
