Growing Bulb Onions From Seed

Bulb Onions From SeedThere are two ways to grow main crop onions: from sets or seeds. Sets are arguably easier for the beginner but they have their drawbacks. Firstly, you get a lot less for your money but also they seem to attract the birds who pull them from the ground and they can import diseases.

Starting by sowing seeds, usually undercover either in a greenhouse or coldframe is easier than you might think and avoids any disease problem.
