Oops! Apologies, as I mightOops! Apologies, as I might have got this wrong. With the onions I started in troughs in late February, after planting them out the bulbs have all shrunk and gone soft. I guess I don't yet know my onions. I'm only a year two allotmenteer and last year might have been beginner's luck, I'm not sure. I've checked out the more experienced gardeners and they planted out their sets direct in second week in April, with the ground getting a bit warmer - I planted some more then too and they're doing OK.
