A potato onion update
In autumn I sowed some of the precious Green Mountain potato onion seed I got from Kelly Winterton. Some went in the garden before I left on holidays, but I hedged my bets and put 5 in a pot and took it to my mum's for safekeeping over winter.
The garden grown ones are lost - I either forgot to label them, or the labels have come out. I will be keeping a close eye on the multiplying onion plot, which is where I suspect they are lurking, but I just potted up the 5 advanced overwinter plants to grow on in the hothouse, and sowed the rest of Kelly's seed, around 30 seeds. Here's hoping.
