    • Red Onion – Red Baron

      £6.99
      (20 Plug Plants)

      A must have in the kitchen garden
      This onion variety will produce firm, flattish-round bulbs with dark purple skin and red-tinged flesh. You can expect to harvest in late summer – if you dry the skins well (by drying in the sun for several days) the onions will store well. Try planting your onion plants next to carrots as this will help to deter carrot fly from the carrots. Growing onions from plug plants is just as easy as growing onions from sets. A full growing guide is provided with the plants.
