 Cultivation advice Onion Sets – Akado

  • Soil is best prepared the previous season with organic matter.Do not plant on a freshly manured bed.
  • Try to avoid planting in the same place as onions from current or previous year.
  • Sow late Sep – Nov in the UK as soon as delivered..
  • Plant like small bulbs so that the tips are just showing above the soil 10 cm apart with 20 cm between rows. (Closer spacing will produce smaller mature onions)
  • Protect during early growth in autumn if you have squirrels or pigeons in the area.
  • Keep weed free.

(Please note onion sets are supplied by packaged weight and exact counts of onion sets per packet will vary with the mixed sizes of the sets.)

(If not planted immediately, open bag and spread somewhere cool and dry to prevent the sets sweating and rotting)
