 Cultivation advice Onion Sets Contado

  •  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 the previous year.
  • Sow early Mar through to late Apr in the UK.
  • 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 if you have squirrels or pigeons in the area.
  • Keep weed free and water during dry periods.

(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)
