Thought I would try a bit of a How to – never done one before so here goes! 🙂
First off you need to have your onions completely dry so that the stems and leaves are all dry & brown – it is best to dig them out of the ground and leave them on the top of the soil where they have been planted for a few days and then transfer to the greenhouse.
(Onions drying out in the green house.)
Next you need some garden twine or string and make into a loop (150cm or more) and tie a knot to make the loop secure.
After this select your first onion making sure to check its ok and isn’t soft or rotten. Position at the bottom of the string (loop) and put the stem and leaves through vertically between the string, loop the leaves underneath & round the string, then take leaves round both bits of string horizontally, then put the leaves in between the string on the third loop and pull down gently.
Hopefully the pictures will help with instructions 🙂
Keep adding your onions on either side in the same fashion until you get about halfway up or just over.
When you have finished cut off the excess leaves and you can hang them up in your greenhouse or garage. (We hang a string up just outside our kitchen for easy use 🙂
Hopefully I have done a pretty good job of explaining 😀 Have fun trying this and enjoy….. 🙂
