Happy New Year to all giant vegetable growers - lets hope 2021 is a healthier year and we can all meet up again at our shows. Potted up my early Onions into 9 inch pots, most in Coir with a few in Peat (Terra) Supplementary lighting now on 9.75 hrs.

Potted on 1st Onion sowing plants into 18litre square pots, they will be difficult to move into their final growing areas with such a large root ball but they are in COIR so if I let them dry a little first hopefully they will be lighter. Do not expect to be moving them until mid/end March.
