Seem to recall a spout that started as a sprout, then opened out like a small cabbage, but loose leaves.

Nothing to do with gardening. How do you stop spectacle's steaming up when wearing a mask. When I go into the supermarket, I am walking around like Blind Pugh. :(

Reminds me of my Brother who liberally put chicken pellets down when laying a new turf lawn some years ago. The local foxes spent hours digging up said lawn. looking for chickens.

Re: JAMES LONG KEEPING ONION SEED

Message received and replied to. They really do live up to their name, we’ve only just finished last years, they were still as good as they were last autumn, at a guess they probably had another month in them before they started sprouting. Bedfordshire champion in my opinion do come a close second ...
