Re: Overwintering onions

Um, I'm not sure what variety they are without looking (can't check now) they were sold in my local garden centre specifically for overwintering... I'm going to stick them in and give them a shot. Thanks !

Overwintering onions

Can anyone help me with some advice on these?
I bought some hoping to get them in last year but then the weather turned bad and I didn't end up planting them. If I plant them now do you think they'll stand a chance?
