hi my onion sets i planted are growing well but alot of them are turning to seed will this ruin the onion should i cut the seed head off could it be the affects of the warm weather last year they were grand thanks



Cut the stalk off an inch or so from the onion, use those onions first when you harvest as they wont keep well. As to why it happens a cold spring followed by a hot summer can cause the problem.
