Southport endangered varieties


I regret that these two onions have little to do with Southport Lancs and as far as I can see are not on the list of any major seed company in Britain. Nevertheless specialist suppliers will sell the seeds. The Red globe was available from D T Brown until fairly recently and is an excellent fiery onion. The white globe has a paper thin skin. Both are on the list of endangered vegetables.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
