    The onions that are big and going to seed need pulling out now. In fact any that are going to seed need pulling out now. Look up the internet for more info.

    Yes try growing it - I have some which are just starting to spread now. In really good soil and plenty of water they could spread a diameter of 4m. You could move/train the vine to a smaller area.

    From what I have read white don't keep as long as brown. Cure them in the sun for a week or so then keep in a cool dry place spread out - probably best to give some away.

    I have just grown crystal apple cuies - a lot better taste than the green ones I believe. Available Boondie seeds.

    My onions growing in Napier are sprouting seed heads. Some are large seeming perhaps fully grown or close but some aren�t. Should I nip the heads and leave them or pull them immediately?
