Cultivation advice Onion Sets Shakespeare Autumn Sets 

All sets have been graded 14-21 mm

 

  • 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.
