Electric onion sets are a great choice for over wintering. Plant in Autumn for an early harvest. Use the young growth as Spring onions.
Onions require a deeply cultivated and well-drained soil.
Onions will benefit from an application of general fertiliser in the soil prior to planting. Follow the instructions for planting. Check every few days, until growth commences and re-plant any sets that are disturbed by birds etc.
When the leaves start to die down, use a fork to partly ease the onions out of the soil. After a few days, bend the tops over and after a similar period, lift the onions leaving them on the surface to ripen. When dry, rub off the loose skin and roots. Store them in a cool dry place in trays or make into an onion rope.
Plant these onion sets rather than seeds as they are more reliable and earlier to harvest.

Review of Onion Electric Red (50 onion sets for overwintering) by Mrs P

Garlic bulbs arrived the next day and were about 6" high within 2 weeks of planting. I hope they will be hard enough to survive the winter.

I was very pleased with the prompt service I received with my order which was over-wintering Onins. They were in very good condition and packed well. I am looking forward to a good crop of onions next year. Thank you.
