Happy New Year to all, lets hope we have a more temperate growing climate rather than the high/low's of 2022. Todays sunshine opened the vents of my propagating greenhouse so will suit the Onions inside.

7 leaves on most of the Onions in 7 inch pots filled with Coir, think they will need moving on in a couple of weeks.

Inside the onions are being kept warm under a thick fleece inner tunnel cover + electric heating/lights.
