    It's more for me just to grow something across the colder, darker period...

    This is a really good way, turn on subtitles if you don't speak russian. He does a few other things as well, strawb in waste pipe is another I think.

    M_C, How are your onions doing?
    Fight for your health.
    Hug those who care about you, do all you can for those you love (if they want it). We just never know when it might be the last time we talk to them or see them.

    I reckon at this rate they will be ready for summer!

    It looks like I'm losing another one so it appears I may only harvest 4

    Yeah, but that means I'll have to go out, and spend money. Why do that if I can have fun, be home, and have fresh spring onions for basically free?

    As much as the curve might be flattening, social distancing could be in place "indefinitely". I ain't queueing outisde ASDA for a literal freaking hour for 55p worth of spring onions

    Anyway, I need normal plants to take up coco run offs if/when I switch.

    These are from last year. I forgot about them and they stayed in the garden throughout winter. If you only remove the green tops as in the pic they keep growing. The root ball on the big one fills the pot.

    Starting to get there - Well, 3 of them are... I'm not convinced the 4th one will make it



    I should really give them a clean up & get rid of the dead stuff....

    Just get them on.

    Are you growing from seeds?

    You can keep the bottom parts of supermarket spring onions, let them root in a small dish of water then plant them outside. That way you have a little headstart over planting from seeds.

    Good luck!!

    Well, I harvested all four of them today and they'll be going in a salad for tea

    Was it worth it? Hell yeah, all it really cost was the seeds & compost. The 'pot' was an old washing capsule pot that would go in the bin normally, they've required no nutes - just a little TLC

    But, so much for 60 days! I reckon if I started them now then 60 days would be about right but they took me around 150 days but I started Xmas time when it was cold & light-less...

    But you're not here for the words, you want some pics











    So, this ends this diary... but I may wash the tub & restart

    Nah, like I said, time was the only real cost, I was always going to go to the end

    That said, a 50% loss was a little disappointing - but we enjoyed the ones we had left

    Oh, yup, I washed the pot & restarted - well, I do have a few hundred more seeds LOL
