How To Grow

Sow Autumn and Winter, through to Spring in cooler southern areas, 5mm (1/4”) deep, in rows 15cm (6”) apart. Cover with fine soil and keep moist. Thin seedlings early to 2cm (1”) and later to 8cm (3”) apart. Prepare the soil well by adding organic material and a pre-planting fertiliser. Onion varieties vary in maturity so you can have a crop for many months of the year. Onions like a fine rich soil and an open sunny position. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
