Economy approx. 125
Growing onions from seed is very easy, a lot cheaper and also less prone to disease than growing from sets. They can be started as early as January with some heat but Spring sowings will also produce decent sized bulbs.
Sturon is a very popular, traditional variety producing large, Globe shaped, golden-yellow/straw coloured onions with an excellent flavour. They are late-ripening, cold hardy, & have good resistance to bolting.
The onions stores very well.
Sow seeds in modules from Jan at a depth of 1cm(½ in).
Transplant to 10cm apart in rows 15cm apart when plants are approx. 15cm tall.
Early sowings should be made undercover and planted out under fleece until the weather warms up.
Direct sow from March-April in drills 1cm deep and 15cm apart.
No thinning is required but bulbs will grow bigger if thinned to 10cm apart. The thinnings can be eaten as spring onions.
