How to Guide

Sow outdoors

March-September: Sow thinly 1cm (1⁄2in) deep and in rows 20cm (8in) apart. Keep soil moist at all times.

 

Tips

No need to thin; just pull when onions are young and slender. Sow little and often for continuous supply throughout the summer.  Spring onions perform well in containers and are quick to crop. September sowings can be overwintered.
