I've always used onion sets. Can anyone pass on their experience with growing from seed.
Hi Dave, Â 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. Â You can harvest them individually by picking the largest first and leaving the others to grow on. Â They may not grow into show specimens but they will be quite useable. Â You can use the same method for shallots and spring onions. Â Hope this helps.
