Onion Set
Allium cepa
Delivery: end of April or early May
More and more popular for cooking or in salads, you can grow red onions more rapidly with red onion sets. Red onions are the onions with the sweetest taste. 100 - 150 bulbs / 500 g
PLANTING TIME: Sow in the spring when the soil is workable, on a firm seedbed. To extend the growing season, start under cover in seed trays or cell packs in early spring. SOIL: Grow them in an open area, on fertile medium to light soil that is well drained. Prepare soil by digging in a good quantity of well-rotted manure. Do not plant in fresh manure. An all-purpose feed may be worked into the seedbed before sowing. Onions have low nitrogen requirements. SPACING: Press bulbs in the soil about 4 cm apart: for larger onions, thin out to 12 cm apart. GROWING TIPS: Keep site free of weeds. Onions have fairly small roots and need small quantities of water once well established. Plant in full sun. HARVESTING: Tops of onions will turn brown and wilt. For fresh use, pull or lift as needed. For storage, make sure that the outer skins are thoroughly dry before putting in storage. Handle carefully to prevent storage rot. Store in a dry, cool area.
