    This is the first year I've sown onion seed. Prior to that it's always been sets. I've never even heard of pelleted onion seeds!

    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    Not sure I see the point. Never really had a problem sowing carrots parsnips or onions to want to have them pelleted.

    I'd never heard of pelleted seeds. I can definitely see an advantage in them but the older I get the more 'back to nature' I get and I might feel slightly iffy about taking a natural seed and coating it. Obviously feelings are just that though and there doesn't appear to be a factual cause for concern, especially if this idea has been around for many years.

    I'm going to read some more about them now.
