Wanted – potato onions

March 12, 2012

I am after some potato onions to grow. I used to grow them when I was younger but have been unable to find any lately. I have had bad experiences with one of the companies that offers them so would rather buy them from a backyard grower.

I am happy to pay for postage, I can pay for the onions or offer a swap if I have anything that you would like.

    Hi Damien,

    I have grown both white and brown varieties for the last few years. I bought Digger’s Club ones originally and had no issues, just saved a few each time for replanting. Email me as I have a few I could pass your way.

    Kind regards,
    Ray

    Hi Ray,

    That sounds great! I would love some brown as well as some white if possible. Can you tell me any differences you have noticed between the two (other than colour)? When I was younger we used to have brown ones, I was very happy with them.

    I’m not exactly sure how to find your email address.

    HI Jackie,
    Sorry I haven’t checked the website for awhile and didn’t see your comment.
    Unfortunately what I have is now two weeks in the ground! I passed some on to Damien but planted the rest. If harvest goes well I can possibly pass you some next season unless you get them elsewhere first.
    Ciao,
    Ray
