I started several varieties of onions in 6 inch pots about six weeks ago. They are doing pretty well, but they are at the point where they are excessively rootbound. I have to water them about every 36 Hours, or they wilt.
I should be able to plant them out in the garden within about 7 to 14 days. I really hate to go through the effort of repotting them when we’re that close, but it’s still gonna be a bit too chilly this week to put them out. I have started harden off them off.
So I really have three options:
- Plant them out now despite the chilly weather.
- Limp them along until the right time in the same pots, just keep up on the water.
The forecast is below.
