Onions from seed

I've always used onion sets. Can anyone pass on their experience with growing from seed.

Onions from seed

Hi Dave,  head over to the Grow It video section above, this should give you some tips. Also I personally sow seeds in modules with about 6 seeds per module in Feb, then planting out the whole module a couple of months later, this will give you a cluster of bulbs, no need to separate them, they will move one another out of the wayas they grow.  You can harvest them individually by picking the largest first and leaving the others to grow on.  They may not grow into show specimens but they will be quite useable.  You can use the same method for shallots and spring onions.  Hope this helps.
