    Do you grow garlic? Now is the time that cloves left in the ground start showing their shoots above ground.

    Might also be remains of failed onions sets having another attempt at growth, as they can do that if initially allowed to wither and fail to bulb up.

    we don’t grow garlic, so they are failed onion sets from the spring/summer.

    But will they come to anything?

    They'll go to seed. You could eat them as 'spring onions' if they get big enough, you'll need to remove some dead skins from the bulb to clean them up.

      I will be growing Kelsae's next (this) year, I know I have onion white rot in my garden so, I will be growing in pots, I'm doing this as a tribute to my late uncle (the master of onions).

      Seeds ordered, propagators ready, let's see if I can beat my record weight set several years ago.

        Since we had a frost the other night, I thought I’d dig up one of my parsnips. ‘Tender and True’

            Thanks Sian. By no means the largest I’ve ever grown, but it’s clean (little if any canker), so I’m happy :)
