How to SowIn the garden, April-July.
Plant in the garden, preferably in full sun from April to June. Fork the soil loose to at least 30 cm. Draw a straight furrow of around 4 cm deep and label the row. Lay the seed tape along the furrow and cut to length, cover with 0.5 cm soil, press lightly down and sprinkle with water. Extra rows at 20 cm apart.
The seed will germinate in 6-14 days.

HarvestingHarvest from July to October.
Onions can be harvested from summer onwards. Dig them up one for one, using a small gardening trowel - loosen the soil around the base of the leaves and pull up. Then will then need drying - just lie them in the sun (off the ground somewhere sheltered) until the leaves have turned yellow and dry. They can then be stored long term. Do harvest all before the autumn rains.
