I’ve grown onions for 50 years now, and every year try to get them as big as I can, even putting them in early to try and get as much growing time as I can. Still I can never get them as big as some I saw many years ago on a allotment. This bloke had rows upon rows of at least 6-pound onions. I never saw him to ask, but I’m curious as to what he fed them, or if they were a special onion. I try ash and all sorts of feed to get 3-pound onions but never 6 pounds. Do you have any info that could help me?
I have had an onion growing in my house for about 3 weeks now, and it has just gotten bigger and bigger. It has sprouts coming from the top of it. I put it in a pot with good soil. Now what do I do to take care of it? Should I put it outside? I think it will turn into a flower.
So, we have a regular purple onion with a 3-inch green stalk shooting out of the end. We dug a hole and put the onion in the hole. This won’t work right? I guess it’s already grown. Will this provide a seed for future growth? Was this all just a silly exercise in hole building?
