Delivery: These plug plants can be delivered between late August and mid October.
Choose a sunny, sheltered spot with moist (but not waterlogged!) soil.
Grow in beds or pots
Onions and shallots can be grown quite close together making them a good crop for pots and containers as well as for raised beds, planters and traditional veg patches. If growing in pots and containers, it is best to choose a flat base pot rather than one that tapers off.
How far apart?
10cm apart is enough, and spring onions can be squeezed in a little closer still.
Don't let them get too soggy
Waterlogged soil is not good for onions and shallots and can cause the bulbs to start rotting.
Looking after your plants....
Onions and spring onions grow relatively slowly, and the bulbs don’t tend to swell until the summer. Patience is a virtue!
Water them regularly to keep the soil moist.
Weed regularly because they are shallow rooting and slow growers, so you don’t want them to have too much competition.
Watch out for....
Onion White Rot
They're ready to harvest when....
When the leaves start to turn yellow in mid to late summer, you can check to see if they are ready to harvest. Carefully dig one or two up to have a look with a hand fork.
Once you have dug your onions up, let them dry out in the sun for a while. Once they are dry you can pop them into a netter bag and keep them in a cool, dark place.
Ways to cook
You won’t be short on dishes to cook using onions, they are the base of many a recipe!
