With onion plants it is important to make sure ground is well prepared with plenty of rotted manure/compost (such as Orgro). We recommend that before planting the ground has had a top-dressing of a general fertiliser, such as Growmore raked in. Set out plants approximately 10cn (4in) apart in rows 25cm (10in) apart. Plants grown for exhibition purposes (such as Kelsae, Fasto F1 and Tough Ball F1) should be planted 40cm (16in) apart in rows 50cm (20in) apart. Plant the base of the bulb about 13-20mm (½-¾in) deep and firm well- water plants in.
Keep plants well watered when the weather is dry, but stop watering when the bulbs become swollen. Harvest when foliage begins to turn yellow and die back in August. Read more
