    That's the Ailsa Craig onions planted out in the raised beds, strong looking plants with the roots well established, here's hoping!!

    Onions(and leeks) in the blowaway inside the greenhouse, now in pots, but still some thinning/transplanting of the Ailsa Craig's will be required.

    I think perhaps that the seed has not been sown deep enough. With a little more depth, there would be more stem below ground level to support the top growth.

    I stopped sowing on top of the compost and covering with fine vermiculite because of that problem. I do use supports for my show onions but 8 dozen reds pricked out today have no support whatsoever .

    Now there's a sensible comment

    Following on from that, perhaps they just need stroking....

    Onions have all flopped over, rows 3 - 5, should I repot them and if so should I sink the bottom growth under soil?

    Thanks mcdood

    Oh yes I remember the loop supports now

    I sowed Sturion and Ailsa Craig about two weeks ago.
    Pricked out the Sturion in to 40 x 1" fibre pots at the weekend, looks like I lost a few though, so I've placed a few seeds in to the vacant modules, these will catch up, i'm sure.

    Today I decided to leave the Ailsa Craig where they are in the pot, and instead placed a few seeds into each of 40 modules, on the basis that any which don't take can be substituted with the ones I left in the pot.

    I also have my Japanese Yellow Sensu sets down on the allotment which have been in since around September/October.

    Potted on the onions from a few weeks back and also started some Alisa Craig.

    Also sown Ailsa Craig in a tray. Once they are big enough I have a bed with ground cover which has holes in, use a small dibber and drop them in same as leeks. I use a small cooking blowlamp to make holes in the ground cover it makes a very neat hole and also melts and seals the edges which stops the fibres from coming apart and can be used again many times.
