My onions growing in Napier are sprouting seed heads. Some are large seeming perhaps fully grown or close but some aren�t. Should I nip the heads and leave them or pull them immediately?

The onions that are big and going to seed need pulling out now. In fact any that are going to seed need pulling out now. Look up the internet for more info.
