Overwinter Onion Problem
Hi guys, hope all is well.
Just looking for some reassurance/advice really, I'm growing a load of red onions in plant pots over winter, (sets planted about 5 wks ago in a plastic covered freestanding bookshelf type greenhouse) and they seem to have sprouted nicely. However the leaves are reaching 6-7 inches then flopping over which I assume isn't good; I read somewhere that even if the leaves die off they'll regenerate in spring though this has been in relation to seed-grown rather than set-grown onions.
Do I need to be worried about them and have an emergency replant, or shall I just leave them to do their thing?

Welcome to the forum DHM
Where abouts in the world do you live ?
I have to say that it would not have occurred to me to plant onions like this so I'm not sure what to advise but others may have a better idea .
I have only ever planted onion sets out in the spring .
