Bulb Onions

 

Place sets 10 to 15cm (4 to 6") apart with 23 to 30cm (9 to 12") between the rows. Plant mid-March to end of April as soon as weather allows, do not plant in cold wet ground or it will encourage bolting. Protection from birds may be necessary and ‘Hummline’ has proved successful as has fleece. Spread sets out on arrival in full light and cool conditions. Onion sets need time to dry and mature to ensure best quality.
