Use the young growth on these Radar onion sets for Spring onions. Over Wintering onion sets for an early harvest.

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.
Obviously I don't know how good our onion sets, shallots and seeds are until they grow, but they were delivered promptly and well packed. Good value for money too. We've bought flower plugs from PMN in the past and they were very successful, so we're pretty confident that these will be fine. I like that these were available in smaller amounts as we don't have a lot of space. I don't doubt that we'll be back to buy more stuff before the Spring for both garden and greenhouse growing. The only thing I'd like to see changing is that the delivery cost cold be a bit less.

    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.
