    I grew sturon and 'stur bc 20' last year and they grew very well 300 sets produced 70kg, the best crop I've ever had. I've planted out about 200 this year. Last year must have been just right for onions, rain at regular intervals. This year they are doing ok I think. In the attached, there is a quinoa plant(looks like fat hen) bottom left, then a row of seed onions (variety up-to-date) sown a bit late and hard to see, then the sets.

    I've planted 3 from last year to see if I can get any seeds off them as they are excellent keepers. May be a bit late as only planted last week and no sprouts yet. No idea which of the 2 varieties as the paper bags split in transit and they were all mixed up.
