My onions were 2 feet rall and doing splendidly until the high winds the other day, not several of them are laying flat on the ground. Will they carry on growing or should I get them up ?



Well well - yours flat from the wind and Hywel's flattened by his cat - its just bad luck time for onions! I'd leave them be for a bit and see if they stand up again.Or you could stake them...

If a few onions are laying down flat, you can simply set them straight. Don't let them lay on the ground - the bugs will get them.
