I agree with the previous reviewer that it would be better to supply these in smaller volumes (up to 50) as even with an allotment I can't grow 130 sets and plenty get discarded.

I have to say these were not a success. I planted out in October 2013 and netted them but had a lot of issues finding them "pulled out" - I have been told this was possibly by worms and to be fair I have never seen as many worms as congregated anywhere as in my onion patch.

The few that did survive to started to sprout in late December but the bulb never got much bigger than twice the original set bulb size. As the same issue affected my Electric Red bulbs too its possible that the issue was related to the ground at my allotment. Shallots grown adjacent fared slightly better.

I think I will try overwintering again but maybe change the variety and obviously change the location.

Yes, I would buy them but why 130 sets?! If i only want 20 - 30 unions.....?? The 50 offered of red onions makes more sense but even that is quite a lot for me since I prefer to plant several varieties of allium rather than swamp the garden space with just white onions or red onions when I want garlic, leeks and shallots for the same space as well.
