My ‘Mammoth’ onions have a long way to go if they are to get as big as their potential 3kg weight. They didn’t have the perfect life I admit and I didn’t give them special treatment but I fear I am not going to have anything spectacular. Having said that, in the past week the bulbs have started to put on weight like me locked in a chocolate shop so there is still time.
I will not give up on them though and I think I have learned enough to give it a second go next year when I will put them in richer soil. I was terrified of feeding too much after I found some white rot in some areas last year but I think I will try them somewhere else next year and go for broke. At least they look healthy enough right now and there is still a month of growing to go! Watch this space.
