Be prepared for spring 2022 and order your onion sets and shallots now, and have them delivered early in 2022 just in time for planting

Onions and Shallot Sets are supplied in 200g bags

Stocks are very limited this year so do order early

Please Note: These are a pre season item and as such, if you are ordering items for immediate delivery along with the pre season Seed Potatoes or onion sets,  you will incur a separate delivery fee

Plant from early March to mid-April.

Onion sets will benefit from a good soil improved with a lot of organic matter such as farm yard manure, home made compost or ang nutrient-rich organic matter.

This will improve the nutrient value of the soil along with improving soil texture which is important to help root development of onions and also in retaining moisture. If onions sets dry out whilst growing then they will bolt early (produce flowers and go to seed)

Feed with a good quality organic, high Potassium feed during the growing season

 

Plant the onion sets about 10-15cm apart and about 2-3cm deep

Birds can be a problem immediately after planting so you can try covering the newly planted sets with horticultural fleece until they have rooted in.

Onions do not like competition from weeds so keep the rows weed-free by using a mulch or regular hoeing

Onions can be harvested when they’re big enough to eat or the foliage has turned brown and started to wither.

Let them dry out before storing them in a cool dry shed. They will store best if left untrimmed and uncleaned

Please Note: These are a pre season item and as such, if you are ordering items for immediate delivery along with the pre season Seed Potatoes and onion sets,  you will incur a separate delivery fee
