    Potty, the NVS website has Peter Glazebrooks method here http://nvsuk.org.uk/images/user/Grow...Glazebrook.pdf

    deffo worth reading up on. Peter does go to extreme lengths to achieve his objectives. Don't let that put you off. Just scale back what he does to suit your set up and time you have available

    just had a read through that webpage, It's only partially complete as there is a stack error. I've notified the webmaster so keep checking it.

    Is this where the phrase "knows his onions" comes from?

    Or in my case VVG doesn't know his onions.

    I don't know mine either Potty so don't feel you are on your own. I am growing from seed this year on shallots and onions, because I want to save seed in future. I too have been following AP guidance in these threads plus Miss Zazzy's seed saving prowess.

    In that case looks like we will be learning together. Should be fun but I think I will still have some sets just to make sure I have onions at the end of the season.

    Potty,the biggest advantage of joining is that it can put you in touch with expert growers locally who will be delighted to encourage and give advice. Forgive my lack of geographical knowledge of your part of the country which I have assumed to be the Midlands. You can find details of your local district associations here http://www.nvsuk.org.uk/midland_da.html . I won't do a sales pitch. I just haven't regretted joining.
