How to grow?.

  • Plant onion sets in rows in any firm, well drained soil in full sun.
  • Prepare the planting area several weeks in advance by incorporating some well rotted garden compost to improve drainage and soil fertility. Avoid planting onions on freshly manured soil.
  • On particularly wet ground, try growing onion sets in raised beds.
  • Plant the bulbs so that the tip of bulb is just protruding through the soil surface.
  • Leave a space of 10cm (4″) between each bulb, and 30cm (12″) between each row.

Special Note: Onion sets are simply small, immature onions, which have been lifted and dried to prevent any further growth. Once planted in spring the sets grow in size and each one forms a full-sized bulb when ready to harvest.
