I have just received my senshyu onions and garlic from an independent dealer in England. Try typing in onion sets into Ebay - the quality is just as good and they were half the price the traditional seed & bulb companies charge.

those onion sets were of course reasonably priced (rather than oriced). too early in the morning to type properly. Now, where is the coffee.....

hey folks thanks for your replies, i got some garlic from the garlic farm on the isle of wight, if you never heard of it take a look a their website worth a look. a little overpriced but ill just try to use the produce from that crop to use for next years crop, think ill get senshyu onions in dublin, thanks a lot folks for your help.

if anyone else is trying to order bulbs of garlic or onion from england dont bother with thompson and morgan or simply seeds, they wont deliver them outside mainland uk, suttons will but they seem to have an issue with visa debit cards, ye be warned Smile

I"ve used Dobies (www.dobies.co.uk) and Plant World Seeds, (www.plant-world-seeds.com) and found them very good. Plant World have a very unusual selection of flower and Veg. seeds from around the world. Tried some red carrots and weird lookin tomatoes this year, (Black Russian, Black Cherry,Tigerella,) Hilds blue winter and watermelon Radish, No problems with any, all grew to to type. What the hell! you only live once.
