Hoping for a few ideas and help on this one,

for the last three years i have been struggling with growing onions from seeds and end up having to buy sets which are never that great.

again this year started seeds off on boxing day ( the kelsae) in module put in the greenhouse in a probagater and all seedlings have appeared but have gone leggy and most of them have flopped over. What am i doing wrong and any good growing on tips. thanks

advice regarding strawberries for newbie

hi there if i was you i would carry on with the seeds and raise plants from them,( this is so rewarding) but while they are growing get a few plants for this year theres nothing better then home grown strawberrys and take the runners off them for new plants and you will have two different varities when your seeds turn into plants and start cropping, and you will have strawberrys for many years.
