              I started a bit earlier this season, sown Kelsae (3 year old seed packet) at the end of November. After germination mine went into the greenhouse and have struggled with the cold. I have just brought them indoors under growlamps to perk them up:

                        If it helps with a search, you had them for onion growing in 2013, but probably not if shown using a photobucket hosted image.

                          Yeah, the majority of my previous pics were hosted by PB :doh:
                          I still have the lights, but are buried under a pile of ‘stuff’
