    Just sown North Holland Blood and Zebrune Shallots.

    The Ailsa Craig just coming out of Loop. Many seem to be growing out of the compost on extended white roots. Had been hopping to leave them in this tray until next month, but now going to have to prick them out. Seems seed case too heave to lift and root growing out of soil. Is this because not enough soil on seeds or do onions just do this to annoy us?

    Don't know about the seedcase being too heavy to lift but I do know that when I've covered the seed with fine vermiculite which is very light that I've had similar problems. I now sow under approx " of compost.
