Had a lot of hassle from birds till the sprouts came on the onion sets. Might try "chitting"them next year.
They will grow again but will mature a bit later. otherwise they'll be fine.
Very cold here in Tipperary tonight. Some snow flakes this evening. Rain, wind and frost forecast for tonight. Everything covered up but keeping fingers crossed the wind doesn't blow the covers off.
Have been covering up for weeks now as we get a slight frost most nights till early May.
If they do get a touch of frost keep direct sun off them as this burns the leaves.
Just for you Dippa Dazza
Right hand left foot here too.
Sowed onion sets and covered my earlies to protect from frost.
Can't see why not.
Raspberries do this all the time. They need a barrier to keep them from spreading all over the garden. The roots are shallow and from these the new sprouts emerge.
Judith you can keep them in a shed in a container till Autumn and plant them out again or pot them up with new compost. They keep well. Weren't they dry when you bought them?
