    Default Sowing Paris Silverskin Onions

    Hi, I wondered if it was possible to sow Paris Silverskin Onion seeds in trays/modules and then plant in final position rather than direct as you can do for Leeks.

    Sow in a tray or modules?

    Kind Regards Rob

    That's how I did mine last year and how I intend to do them this year but 5 - 6 in a vending machine cup

    Do you then separate them, Cadalot, or do you plant out them in clumps?

    I sow thrm like Cadalot. A pinch of seeds in each module. When they are established I plant them out as a bunch. They seem to find there own space and you can start using them when they are small which will give the rest of them more space to mature.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.
