      Thanks @sandymac. I see if I can source some for next season, altho I think there is probably more to my sad efforts than the wrong variety of seed:rolleyespink:

        Only 7 years to go before the dreaded "Onion White Rot" will no longer be an issue? Then watch me go!:giggle:

          Being serious, it was my uncle who introduced me into the Kelsae and for 2 years I had good results but following his death it seems my onion growing aspirations have died along with him? RIP uncle John, you are dearly missed.:sad:

              That was my plan but we've decided on a complete re-vamp of the bottom (veg & fruit) garden along with a bigger greenhouse I'll have to build. Trouble is, I'll have to undergo surgery so not sure how long I'll be out of action or when!
