    Onions? which way??

    Unless you’re looking at growing large onions, I see no reason why you couldn’t sow them after your move. Pretty sure I’ve sown at the beginning of March in the past, and produced decent sized onions.

    @JWKThanks. I'd been thinking they'd go tough like leeks, but you're right - thinking of when I'm cooking, the mushy ones are the ones that have sprouted.I'll get them up then.Cheers.
