I over wintered onions this year for the first time on the plot, planting in the autumn. Here in the NW we had sever flooding.The onions had little growth on them in April and I expected them to bolt so planted up sets as normal for a crop to save this year.
At least half the over wintered crop have tried to produced flower heads, which have been picked off . I've started to harvest larger bulbs and have an early crop of onions which allows my main crop to mature without picking...
To cut to the chase...I'll over winter again for an early crop of onions.
