So maybe if I give them 23/6/10 until June time then reduce the Nitrogen and increase Phosphates and Potassium.

I normally grow them in raised bed but this year I thought I would try something a bit different. 

Please could someone HELP!

Hello gardeners.

I'm in need of some help finding the N.P.K requirements for the Kelsae onion, I'm planning on growing some giant onions in hydroponics this year. I make my own hydroponic fertilizers and I can't find the optimal N.P.K requirements for onions on line. I'm thinking of making a solution of 23/6/10. But if anyone could help me find the precise requirements I would be very grateful.

A big HELLO to everyone, thank you very much for watching my harvest of my garden monster. Also a big THANK YOU to all of you who have subscribed.

Sorry Jennifer but I think I have to agree with Gemma, it has to be baked for me.

Hi, Lyn, the strain I grow is really for the show bench but they taste great and I haven't had a woody one yet. But I'm not going to eat this one, I've already potted it up to produce the next generation of show parsnips. 

Thanks Dove, if I get another bigger one I will post some more pic's.

Yes I'm from Suffolk and the paper was the "Beccles and Bungay Journal" Which is owned by the "E.D.P". It's going to be an article about my son growing a giant pumpkin, because he was the one that would water and feed it. He also filmed all of my gardening videos on YouTube. I will also be showing some long carrots and long parsnips, also a few other little bits. I will be posting all of my harvest videos to YouTube.
